LM Live serves the Lower Manhattan community by producing events that promote professional growth and development. A project of the Downtown Alliance, the programming series features conversations with individuals and organizations from Lower Manhattan on topics that include entrepreneurship, current events, the future of work and career advancement. One of LM Live’s most popular events is a monthly Women’s Breakfast, which provides a venue for women, non-binary people and their allies to connect on workplace issues.

New York on Film: “CURED” Screening and Conversation
Mentally ill. Deviant. Diseased. And in need of a cure. These were among the terms psychiatrists used to describe lesbians and gay men in the ’50s, ’60s and ’70s. The 2020 documentary “CURED” chronicles the battle waged by a group of activists who declared war against the medical establishment — and won a crucial victory for LGBTQ equality.
On June 14, the Downtown Alliance’s New York on Film series continues with a screening of “CURED” — followed by a conversation between activists Reverend Magora Kennedy, Jack Drescher, MD and Charles Kaiser. The discussion will dig into the lived experiences of our speakers during the seventies and their work, which transformed not just LGBTQ people’s perceptions of themselves, but also the social fabric of America. Tickets are $5 and include popcorn and a beverage. All proceeds will go to a nonprofit of our speakers’ choice.
Date: Tuesday, June 14
Time: 6–8:30 p.m.
Location: Alamo Drafthouse Lower Manhattan
