WED NOV 13, 20:45 End of The Century For anyone who has traveled alone the first 12 wordless minutes of this film are so recognizably real that you don’t realize you are being set up for a LOVE STORY that is not quite a poem, a painting or a dream.. Read Queerguru’s full review HERE
FRI NOV 15, 20:30 TO 23:45 PREPVERTS EXHIBIT
PrEPster’s PrEPverts project started as a photo-shoot, and ended-up kickstarting conversations about how sex is represented in sexual health work. Photographer Ajamu’s work from PrEPverts will be exhibited across the weekend, culminating in a panel discussion on Sunday evening.
Saturday 16th November 2019 SHORTS: (DEEP) INTO YOU
It’s time for our holy sex-ational celebration of tantalising and erotic encounters in short form with tasty platter of BDSM, daddy power and wetness . Bring something cold to drink as you are guaranteed to get overheated
Sunday 17th November UNSETTLED: SEEKING REFUGE IN AMERICA : Although set in America this is a universal tale that could happen anywhere in the world where LGBTQ people go to seek safe refuge …..particularly in the UK.. It’s the very sobering story of 4 asylum seekers who have survived death threats , brutal harassment for their sexuality and/or their gender nonconformity. Whilst so much of the world are hostile to our very existence every reminder, such as this powerful documentary, should serve notice on our community. We need to do more to help our brothers and sisters as one day that could easily be us.
