Emergence: Out of the Shadows Screening
Press Release December 8th, 2022
Sources Community Resource Society and White Rock Pride are presenting a screening of Emergence: Out of the Shadows, January 7th, Saturday at 7 PM at White Rock Players Club followed by a Q & A. This gripping, compassionate documentary portrays three young adults’ desperate journeys to express their sexuality within South Asian conservative families. Both youth and parent perspectives are illuminated as they struggle with denial, shame, and socio-community-cultural taboos to emerge to understand, to love and support each other. A Question-and-Answer period will follow with Alex Sangha the Producer, Vinay Giridhar the Director, cast members as well as representatives from Sources and White Rock Pride Society. The film sheds light on the lived experience of parents, gay, and lesbian members of the South Asian community in Metro Vancouver. This documentary is a brilliant opportunity to build community, understanding and support. Parents, LGBTQ individuals and the community are invited to learn from nuances specific to South Asian LGBTQ experiences and to also identify with the universal experience of shared emergence to understanding, love and inclusion.
