Although their stories are not well-known, Asian Americans participated actively in the nascent LGBT civil rights movement in Southern California. API Equality-LA honors two such pioneers with short films featuring Tak Yamamoto and June Lagmay, who in 1980 were founders of Asian Pacific Lesbians and Gays, the first gay Asian organization in Los Angeles. 

A discussion with these two ground-breaking activists will follow the film screening. Co-presented by API Equality-LA and the National Museum.

Free with Museum admission. Reservations recommended to rsvp@janm.org or 213.625.0414 at least 48 hours prior.
