CSUF Professor of Communications, Carolyn Coal, will screen her film, "A Place to Live: The Story of Triangle Square”, and host a discussion. "The scarcity of affordable housing is a deepening national crisis in America. LGBT seniors face unique challenges as they are often forced back into the closet in retirement homes or separated from their significant others in assisted living facilities. A Place to Live: The Story of Triangle Square, profiles seven gay & lesbian seniors as they enter a lottery to secure a home in the newly constructed affordable housing building in Hollywood. Not all of them will get in."
