|Leo Herrera is a Mexican writer, activist and filmmaker. His work focuses on the American queer experience. His short films explore LGBTQ culture, politics and history, paying homage to our past and educating a younger generation. Leo is the director of Fathers, a sci-fi documentary and multimedia project which imagines the AIDS pandemic never existed and a generation lived to change the world. Fathers weaves real-life events, survivor histories and fiction, creating a surreal vision of an alternative universe (streaming now at iftheylived.org). Leo’s viral “essay memes” explore queerness, race, Covid and HIV stigma, and can be found on Instagram @herreraimages.
Established in 1983 as a result of the AIDS crisis, New York City’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center has grown and evolved over the last four decades, creating and delivering services that empower people to lead healthy, successful lives. The Center continues to serve the LGBTQ community through virtual support services, launched almost immediately after our building closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We offer a wide range of services including virtual one-on-one counseling; substance use treatment and support groups; virtual youth drop-in space; online arts and culture programming; health insurance navigation; and a virtual “front desk” open five days a week to respond to community inquiries.
