"QueerEdge: From Gay to Queer Liberation" Feature Documentary Screening and Talkback Panel

 

In celebration of Ottawa Capital Pride, join us for a film screening of "QueerEdge: From Gay to Queer Liberation", followed by a Talkback Panel. 

About the documentary:

This feature documentary links the principles and tenets of gay liberation in the Stonewall era to today’s queer liberation movement. Internal politics are revealed providing a critical analysis of the mainstreaming effects of the LGBT equality movement vs. the progressive, sex-positive views of the queer liberation movement. From historical referencing to contemporary issues affecting the LGBTQ communities, an internal divide is uncovered between those who are content with equality and those who continue to fight for liberation. Over 30 academics, activists and artists provide in-depth insights on their queer liberation sensibilities, contributing to a critical socio-political analysis of gender and sexual politics and marginalizations within the LGBTQ movement. 

Panelists:

  • "QueerEdge" director Nick Mulé
  • Activist Charlie Hill
  • Activist Marie Robertson
  • Moderated by Rick Telfer

Light refreshments will be provided.
