CURED an Award-Winning Documentary Available for Streaming

On November 22, the Office of Diversity & Inclusion, along with the Health Sciences Library held a screening event featuring the movie, Cured. If you were unable to attend or would like to view again, it continues to be available.

“Five years in the making, CURED illuminates a pivotal yet largely unknown chapter in the struggle for LGBTQ equality: the campaign that led the American Psychiatric Association (APA) to remove homosexuality from its manual of mental illnesses. Before this momentous 1973 decision, the medical establishment viewed every gay and lesbian person as diseased and in need of a cure. Business and government used the mental-illness classification to justify discrimination and bigotry. As long as lesbians and gay men were “sick,” progress toward equality was nearly impossible.” — from publisher’s site.

Students, faculty, and staff are able to stream the movie, at their convenience, by signing into Box with their TouroOne credentials. This may also be used in a course or for other planned events.
