Film subjects Cheyenne Adriano and Mari N’timansieme scheduled to attend and participate in a post-film Q&A.

 
A documentary that follows four gay immigrants who have each escaped life-threatening persecution in their native countries. They’ve landed in purported “gay mecca” San Francisco, yet even there, building a new life in an adopted nation is a precarious undertaking. Challenges such as finding affordable housing, employment, and dealing with the newfound loneliness prove further testament to their endurance.

In the United States and around the world, anti-immigrant sentiment is a leading political issue. Though many sympathize with their struggle, we tend to forget the humanity of this issue. This film brings us closer to those previously nameless people. It is a intimate look the lengths queer immigrants must go through to survive and overcome.
