Growing up in rural North Carolina, Moises Serrano fell in love with a country that refused to recognize his full humanity - both as an undocumented immigrant and as a gay man. Forbidden follows Moises’ personal journey as an activist fighting for the American Dream. Moises is an ideal character for challenging stereotypes about undocumented immigrants and same-sex couples. Viewers can readily connect to his passion, complexity, and all-around likability. His story relates directly to the 11 million undocumented immigrants currently living in the United States and LGBTQ individuals fighting for equality and civil rights.

Filmmakers and Talent expected to be in attendance for a Q&A after the film.
