Documentary Shorts


Do you love documentaries? Here's a collection of 9 short features for gay, lesbian, and transgender audiences on a variety of intriguing queer subjects. Australia: In McSwiggan, a man's experience with depression and homophobia shapes his life for the better, leading him to become an activist for the LGBT community through his YouTube channel. Netherlands: Are you a man, a woman or are both classifications irrelevant in What's a Gender?  United States: An elderly gay couple must contend with the effects of a crippling degenerative disease in Alzheimer's: A Love Story. The world of square dancing is rather traditional, but in Partners we see how gay square dance clubs in New York and California accept anyone, gay or straight, just as they are. BJ, a butch lesbian, successfully avoided dresses her entire life until she adopted Jeffrey, who starts to dance in gowns and perform for her in Pink Boy.  In May 1988, girlfriends Claudia Brenner and Rebecca Wight were violently attacked while hiking the Appalachian Trail. In the Hollow tells their story as Claudia returns to the trail for the first time since the incident. A Lifetime of Making Changes tells the story of Maxine Wolfe, 74, who reflects on a lifetime of activism as a coordinator at the Lesbian Herstory Archives in Brookly, N.Y. Five queer and trans Asian-Americans from New York City explore their relationships with their family and culture in Gaysians.
