Luminate’s LGBTI+ Saturday Social

October 15 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Free
an older black man with white hair sits in his house, with a big smile. He is wearing a blue stripy shirt which is unbuttoned halfway, a blue stone necklace and cream trousers. The house looks well-lived in and the image is warm.

This programme is a fun look into older queer narratives. Looking Back with Pride is a short documentary centered around queer and trans individuals in their 60s and 70s reflecting on their memories of coming out and the remarkable changes they’ve witnessed in their lifetimes. Keyboard Fantasies presents the time-travelling tale of Beverly Glenn-Copeland, a transgender, septuagenarian musical genius, as the present finally catches up with him and he embarks on his first international tour at the age of 74. Capturing five decades of relentless musical output and shifting manifestations of gender and sexual identity, set against a backdrop of profound social change, the film celebrates the unpredictable rhythms of life.

Chris Stuart Wilson and India Boxall from Luminate and Indigo Korres, Festival Coordinator, and Nat Lall, curator at SQIFF will lead the event. Refreshments included.

Presented in partnership with Luminate, an organisation that works to ensure all older people in Scotland can enjoy high quality arts and creative activities, whatever their background and circumstances and wherever they live. Supported by Film Hub Scotland, part of the BFI’s Film Audience Network, and funded by Screen Scotland and National Lottery funding from the BFI.

Curated by Nat Lall.
