This powerful new documentary illuminates a pivotal yet largely unknown chapter in the struggle for LGBT equality: the campaign that led the American Psychiatric Association to remove homosexuality from its list of mental illnesses in 1973. CURED takes audiences behind the scenes of this riveting drama to chronicle the strategy and tactics that led to a crucial victory in the movement for LGBT rights.

Community Conversations is a program of The Film Collaborative with support from the National Endowment for the Arts. Community Conversations will be presenting several community-based film programs on the critical social issues of today through Austin in April and May 2021. Future announcement of Community Conversations in Austin will be coming this Spring. For more information on the Community Conversations Program please visit thefilmcollaborative.org/conversations.
