NewFest at The Center Presents "Forbidden"

In this timely documentary, Mexican-born Moises Serrano shares his story of growing up in North Carolina as an undocumented gay man advocating for justice and equality.

Risking everything in search of the American Dream, his parents fled Mexico when he was a child. Twenty-three years later, Serrano is still forbidden to live, learn and love in the country he calls home. Driven by a deep love for his family, who have come to accept being treated as invisible, the impassioned Serrano is activating a national movement proving how one person can change the world.
