LGBT Reception & Screening

Ambassador’s Residence, June 11, 2016

This year’s highlight of the Embassy’s LGBT outreach was a Tri-Mission-hosted reception for the LGBT community at which the Austrian film maker Klaus Händl was honored. Händl’s film “Tomcat”, of which an excerpt was presented at the reception, won the Teddy Award for the best LGBT-themed film at the 2016 Berlinale. Among the guests was also Dionne Warwick, a long-time champion of LGBT rights.
