Leeds Welcome | Queerama


We’re excited to be supporting an exciting new festival that has been organised by the good people at Leeds International and Leeds Young Film Festival. Running from the 14th to the 16th July the INDIs will include specialist screenings of films industry sessions, panel discussions and other installations specially curated for an audience of 16-30 year olds but open to everyone. Queerama is a film created from the treasure trove of BFI archive. The story traverses a century of gay experiences, encompassing persecution and prosecution, injustice, love and desire, identity, secrets, forbidden encounters, sexual liberation and pride. The soundtrack weaves the lyrics and music of John Grant, Goldfrapp and Hercules & Love Affair with the images and guides us intimately into the relationships, desires, fears and expressions of gay men and women in the 20th century- a century of incredible change.
