It also explores a wide variety of issues and situations involving the gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and queer communities. The films we choose are designed to educate, entertain and enlighten everyone; challenge and motivate us. We hope we can participate in changing the world.We’re motivated by a deep desire to share the beautiful and important art we find in GLBTQ cinema. The films we bring to Boulder explore what it means to be gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and queer across ethnic, nationality, class, and racial lines. In a world where we’re largely banned from public recognition, openly displaying the images of GLBTQ people is a political act. The big screen is one way we can do this.
