      Join the producers of the 1 Bronx World Pride Festival for an afternoon of female empowHERment with a luncheon and screening of Rafiki, a 2018 Kenyan drama film directed by Wanuri Kahiu. Rafiki is the story of friendship and tender love that grows between two young women, Kena and Ziki, amidst family and political pressures around LGBT rights in Kenya. The film will be followed by a moderated discussion about the the closed environment that exists for the lesbian community in New York City. This event is generously supported by Montefiore Medical Center and Community Health Network with programmatic support by the New York City Commission on Human Rights.
