Apicha CHC shares some of their favorite Gay Short Films - Part 1

Apicha Community Health Center Aug 23, 2016  


gay-short-films.pngAt Apicha CHC, we embrace the unique and diverse communities we serve, and belong to. That's why we wanted to start a blog series sharing a number of gay short films created by our communities.

These films were produced by a variety of talented individuals in the LGBT community who are telling stories about their experiences.   

The artists who created these films all chose to have their work shown on YouTube, so we wanted to help amplify their voices. The amount of creativity and passion behind these projects is unfathomable and we are so proud to be a part of our community.
