We present on tour an inclusive selection of LGBTQ+ short films from our 2018 Festival Opening Night. Headlining the programme is VISIBLE, created by Campbell X and Kayza Rose, who explore QTIPOC (queer, trans, and intersex people of colour) histories, challenging mainstream perceptions and sanitisation of legacies, and celebrating complexity, multiplicity, myths, gossip, and legends. Also featuring a lesbian sports star coming out, being gay in the Maldives, queer working class vulnerability, and more.

Screenings are taking place across Scotland for LGBT History Month. We are pleased director of VISIBLE, Campbell X, will join us for Q&As in Dundee, Hawick, Ayr, Edinburgh, and Stirling.

VISIBLE (20m)
Dir. Campbell X, Year: 2018
VISIBLE digs in and shreds misconceptions that LGBTQ+ people of colour have no history – and no story to tell. Weaving together the tales of inspirational ancestors, contemporary artists, political activists, and community leaders – VISIBLE challenges mainstream perception and the sanitisation of LGBTQ+ legacies by celebrating complexity, multiplicity, and the myths, gossips, legends, and truths of QTIPOC histories.
