Bruising for Besos is an intimate character study of Yoli – a charismatic Xicana lesbian making familia in a queer/trans people of color scene in Los Angeles. She’s an artist at heart, and along with her best friend, Rani, she makes do with a mundane job. One night she decides to pursue Daña, an alluring Puerto Rican woman. This romance upends the seeming calmness of Yoli’s present life. She soon finds herself recreating a tumultuous past and must choose between a familiar pattern of hurt or begin to face the history that haunts her in order to learn to love “right.”

Film screening followed by a discussion facilitated by Iliana Figueroa, Education and Outreach Specialist at WLRC. This film is part of the Women’s Leadership and Resource Center’s Feminist Films.
