Wednesday 21.08.19 – 9pm: The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert | Yellow Carpet Films – Theme 2 : Queer Film
Yellow Carpet Film Nights will be a place to appreciate the wonderful art of film. Every month we will explore a different theme that shines a light on the representation of social topics such as women, queer, gender and ethnic diversity.
Our second theme is QUEER FILM. Over the month of August we will be screening four films that show how the LGBTQI community have been represented over the generations and genres of cinema.
Have you ever thought about how the LGBTQI community have been portrayed in films?
Do you think they have been portrayed fairly?
