In observance of Latinx Heritage Month, the Out of the Closet and Onto the Screen LGBTQ film series will screen the documentary “El Canto del Colibri” on Wednesday, Oct. 3. Exploring the relationships between Latino immigrant fathers and their LGBTQ family members, the film will be shown at 6 p.m. in Textor 103. The screening is free and open to the public.

Much like the seldom-heard song of the hummingbird, after which the film is named, the voices of Latino fathers are rarely heard in addressing LGBTQ issues. Through raw, heartfelt testimonies, “El Canto del Colibri” delves deeply into issues of immigration, prejudice and isolation, while thoughtfully asking questions of these men’s communities, culture and even their religious beliefs.

The Out of the Closet and Onto the Screen series is sponsored by the Ithaca College Center for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) Education, Outreach, and Services. For more information, visit
