THE BEAUTY PRESIDENT

In 1992, drag queen Joan Jett Blakk made a historic bid for the White House as an openly queer write-in candidate. Today, Terence Smith, the man behind the persona, reflects back on his place in gay rights history at the height of the AIDS crisis.

VIRGIN MY ASS
Director: Adar Sigler

17 mins, Hebrew w/English Subtitles, Israel, 2020

Ophir asks Harel for a small favor that might make him feel like a normal gay guy. OK, maybe not that small a favor. During the somewhat ridiculous, somewhat exciting night the two will spend in bed, they will learn a small lesson in intimacy and community

WAKING UP
Director: James Patrick Nelson

13 mins, English, USA, 2020

When a gay man visits his uncle in the hospital, he launches into an awkward ramble about sexual fantasies, which turns into a vulnerable confession about love and forgiveness. This innovative short film explores the varied experiences of LGBT people from different generations, all in a single shot.

AGAIN I DREAMT OF YOU LAST NIGHT
Director: Mauricio Escobar Duran

10 mins, Spanish w/English Subtitles, Argentina, 2021

Two men talk: about the past, about the future, about the present, but are they part of each other’s past future and/or present. It’s a beautiful story of communicating or not with those we care about.

GAYDREAM

7 mins, English, USA, 2021

A young, imaginative man seeks the support of his outgoing lesbian roommate, while trying to come out to his conservative mother.

Director: Tebogo Malebogo

10 mins, Southern Sotho, Isizulu, Zulu w/ English Subtitles, UK, 2020

After Tau comes to a realization about their sexuality, it sets in motion a cascade of thoughts and emotions in Tumelo - nothing will ever be the same between them. The film is poetic in style, beautifully photographed and simple, yet powerful narrative that sets a tone for queer cinema from Africa.
