The artists of LGBT+films use humour, satire and activism to create their own vision of film images that we hold in our collective memory.
The book aims to celebrate LGBT+ diversity across the spectrum, reclaiming spaces that have always been purely normative and giving them new meaning. Edward Scissorhands as a gay man who always feels “unfinished”. The Addams Family can be queer and also have a lesbian couple; Titanic? A beautiful love story between two women; Jumanji? Drag madness with a make-up palette instead of a board game; The Wizard of Oz? A metaphor of gender and self-discovery or The XYX files about intersex, trans people and their experiences… the possibilities are endless! Just like the imagination of our artists.
We also want to support artists with a collective work on a common theme in which they all feel represented and able to show their talent.
More than 50 artists have been creating original works for LGBT+films.:
