Frameline Voices

Frameline Voices features one film every month that highlights the stories of those in the LGBTQ community underserved by mainstream media.

Frameline Voices originally launched in 2011. From 2011-2016, this program hosted up to 125 films and received more than 3,500,000 hits from every country in the world, while also providing stipends to filmmakers in exchange for their work. The impact was great, but in 2017 Frameline relaunched Voices as a narrowed initiative to focus on just one title per month.  Check out our film of the month below or click the link to the right to see all archived films, which remain online thanks to the generosity of these filmmakers.

Film of the Month

Gaysians

Vicky Du | 2015 | USA | 13m

Gaysians is an exploration of family, immigration and language through the voices of five queer and trans Asian-Americans from New York City. The subjects share stories about their families, and in doing so, shed light on the complicated histories that have shaped these intimate and personal relationships. This moving short is an illuminating patchwork documentary exploring family and culture through the personal stories of a diverse panoply of LGBTQ individuals.
