QTIPOC shorts for LGBT History Month

February 22 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Free - £8
clash

For LGBT History Month, SQIFF and the Coalition for Racial Equality and Rights (CRER) are partnering to showcase short films focusing on QTIPOC representation and ideas.

My Loneliness is Killing Me features a femme man of colour who invites a white man to his apartment for a hook-up, unexpectedly unearthing a dark emotional connection. Clash is a short experimental documentary by queer Iraqi non-binary filmmaker Amrou Al-Khadi critiquing the lack of diversity in on-screen representation in Britain today. Iconic transgender artist and activist, Marsha “Pay it No Mind” Johnson, and her life in the hours before she ignited the 1969 Stonewall Riots in New York City are depicted in Happy Birthday, Marsha!.

The event will be hosted by Samar Ziadat, curator, activist, and co-founder of Dardishi, with a discussion with local QTIPOC artists and activists following the screening.
