Event Details

Join us in the Scott Room for a screening of the documentary MAMA BEARS (2022) and a thoughtful discussion of families accepting and loving their LGBTQ+ children despite the struggles they face in their community. This program is facilitated by David Diamond and Center Lane at Westchester Jewish Community Services. This program is generously supported by the Friends of the Scarsdale Library.

Refreshments will be served.

Find out more about the documentary HERE.

MAMA BEARS is an intimate, thought-provoking exploration of the journeys taken by Sara Cunningham and Kimberly Shappley, two “mama bears” —whose profound love for their LGBTQ children has turned them into fierce advocates for the entire queer community — and Tammi Terrell Morris, a young African American lesbian whose struggle for self-acceptance perfectly exemplifies why the mama bears are so vitally important.
