This distinct selection of documentaries profiles queer people carving out space for themselves in communities, societies, and even families that weren’t built with them in mind.

Verasphere: A Love Story in Costume introduces David and Michael, two HIV+ men, and the colourful arts collective that grew from their twenty-five year relationship, while Stripped pulls back the curtain on the personal and professional life of lesbian exotic dancer Mz Lady Ice, the only woman on an otherwise male lineup.

Director Drama Del Rosario’s personal reflection on his teenage outing by a teacher and his traditional Catholic Filipino family’s response, in In This Family. A moving record of the festivities in the wake of Taiwan becoming the first Asian country to legalise marriage equality, in A Big Fat Taiwanese Same-Sex Wedding Banquet.

Transgender performers recreate long-buried interviews with trans people by 1950s medical researchers and relate their own experiences in Framing Agnes.

The Only LGBTQ+ and Women’s Safe Space in Beirut explores the importance of Haven, a cultural hub for LGBTIQ+ people and women to congregate and share art. And the grown children of same-sex parents answer all the questions director Esmée van Loon is asked as a child of same-sex parents herself, in Dubbel Geluk.
