More Than Just Queer: Luminaries Past and Present

Phyllis Wattis Theater

More than just queer, these films surface the affinity between culture rooted in the LGBTQ community and the avant-garde. An additional program in this series will take place in March. (Please note that some of the films in this program are not suitable for all audiences.)
