June marks the start of Pride Month, a time to celebrate and honor the LGBTQIA+ community and their invaluable contributions to society. As we reflect on the progress that has been made, it's essential to recognize the women and gender diverse individuals who have paved the way for LGBTQIA+ representation in the entertainment industry.

At this critical moment in history, we must listen to and amplify the voices of trans and gender diverse storytellers. Their experiences and perspectives are essential in shaping a more inclusive and diverse society. It's time to stand with LGBTQIA+ and uplift their voices, and work towards a future where everyone is celebrated and accepted for who they are.

Celebrating Juneteenth - June 19th

“Juneteenth (short for “June Nineteenth”) marks the day when federal troops arrived in Galveston, Texas in 1865 to take control of the state and ensure that all enslaved people be freed. The troops’ arrival came a full two and a half years after the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation. Juneteenth honors the end to slavery in the United States and is considered the longest-running African American holiday. On June 17, 2021, it officially became a federal holiday.” -- History.com

Letter from the President

WIFSFBA Celebrating Diversity: LGBTQIA+ Pride Month and Juneteenth

Dear Members,

As we embrace the vibrant month of June, Women in Film San Francisco Bay Area (WIFSFBA) proudly joins the global celebration of LGBTQIA+ Pride Month and the observance of Juneteenth. These events honor the rich history and contributions of the LGBTQIA+ community and African Americans, spotlighting the enduring journey toward equality and justice.

When I was 21 years old, I found myself standing in a hotel in Miami, captivated by the vibrant, sensual paintings of Tamara de Lempicka. Her art, with its bold lines and striking figures, spoke to me in a way that was both profound and deeply personal. As I stood there, absorbing the intricate details of her work, I felt a profound connection. I soon learned that Tamara's art was deeply influenced by her relationships with both men and women. This revelation struck a chord within me. As I explored Tamara's life further, I discovered her bisexuality and, in doing so, recognized the same truth within myself—I was bisexual too.

It was a moment of clarity and self-acceptance, underscoring the importance of representation. This journey of self-discovery reminded me of the struggles and triumphs of the LGBTQIA+ community, whose courage in the face of adversity has paved the way for greater acceptance and equality.

Coming out as bisexual was accompanied by a whirlwind of emotions—fear, relief, anxiety, and ultimately, empowerment. My experience in front of Tamara de Lempicka's paintings was more than a personal epiphany; it was a reminder of the transformative power of art and representation. Our stories, much like Tamara's art, can inspire, challenge, and ultimately shape a future where everyone is free to be their true selves.

LGBTQIA+ Pride Month, celebrated every June, is a time to honor and uplift the LGBTQIA+ community, commemorating the Stonewall Riots of 1969, which were pivotal in the fight for LGBTQIA+ rights. It is a month dedicated to celebrating diversity, promoting acceptance, and advocating for equal rights. Pride Month in San Fransisco is a time of celebration featuring  parades, events, and activities that bring visibility to the struggles and achievements of the LGBTQIA+ community. It is a time for reflection on the progress made, recognition of the work still needed, and celebration of the freedom to live authentically and to love openly.

Juneteenth, observed on June 19th, commemorates the emancipation of enslaved African Americans in the United States. This significant day marks the moment in 1865 when Union soldiers, led by Major General Gordon Granger, arrived in Galveston, Texas, and issued General Order No. 3, which announced that all enslaved people were free. This occurred more than two and half years after President Abraham Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation had legally freed slaves in the Confederate states, but it could not be enforced in many areas until the end of the Civil War and the arrival of Union troops.

Also known as Freedom Day or Emancipation Day, Juneteenth symbolizes a crucial turning point in American history. It celebrates African American culture and heritage while acknowledging the long and ongoing struggle for civil rights and equality. The holiday highlights the resilience and perseverance of the African American community in the face of enduring injustices and underscores the importance of continuing the fight for social justice and freedom for all.​

The intersection of these struggles emphasizes the need for solidarity and mutual support in the fight against oppression. The stories of both the African American and LGBTQIA+ communities teach us the profound impact of visibility and the relentless pursuit of equality. Together, they remind us that our identities and histories are powerful forces for transformation, driving us toward a more inclusive and just world. Our films can tell those stories and help shape that world for the better.

As we observe these important dates, WIFSFBA reaffirms its commitment to fostering a community where all voices are valued and heard. Diversity and inclusion are essential components of a thriving, dynamic film industry. This June, we come together to celebrate our rich, diverse community, recognizing the unique perspectives and talents each individual brings. Join us in honoring LGBTQIA+ Pride Month and Juneteenth, as we continue to champion diversity, equity, and inclusion in all aspects of WIFSFBA. 

I am deeply grateful to those who have paved the way before me, dismantling barriers that once seemed insurmountable, and to all of you who are part of our community. Our journey is far from complete, and at times, it feels as though we have taken steps backward, facing setbacks that can be disheartening and exhausting. While we may never fully eradicate prejudice from our world, I remain convinced that we can make significant strides toward equality. This faith may appear to some as naïve or overly hopeful. But what is the alternative? In the face of adversity, I choose hope. Let us continue to fight for the change we seek. Our scripts, cameras, and films are powerful tools. They capture pivotal moments and drive impactful change, transforming the world one film, one image, and one story at a time.

With warmest regards,

Julie Rubio, WIFSFBA President
