Queer 2: Femme Like You

Programme
Shorts Alternatives

It’s hard to be “feminine” – whatever that means. The second offering of the queer programme continues the themes raised in the first, focusing on people and expressions that oppose or transcend “masculinities”, beginning their own kind of rebellion against dated gender roles.

These films about love, social opposition and self-discovery, are filled with stories about beautiful and unforgettable characters. Among them are drag queens, women, non-binary or otherwise gender non-conforming people who have the courage to live as their authentic selves.

Does the rest of the world have enough courage to accept them?
