Realness & Revelations – Shorts Program

These enriching shorts showcase the stories and experiences of queer and trans folks of color. Celebrating trailblazers, queer resilience, and the beauty of dance, these films feature QTPOC folks forging toward truth and equality.

Many Loves, One Heart tells the story of the nascent LGBTQ movement in Jamaica, highlighting courageous members of the community and their allies. In Colombia, Darío, a 17-year-old boy, tries to hide his love for carnival dancing from his disapproving mother. The body and movement between Two Men open a dialogue of sexuality and hyper-masculinity in a stylized world. Happy Birthday, Marsha! imagines the iconic transgender performer and activist Marsha P. Johnson in the hours before Stonewall. The Things You Think I’m Thinking features a black male burn survivor and amputee going on a date with a non-disabled man. After the bar, they go back to his apartment, where he faces his demons. In Masks, we witness a closeted medical student risk being outed to her family on the same evening that a masked gunman opens fire at a gay nightclub.
