Queer Qlassics

Queer Qlassics

Following June’s 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots in New York (considered the birth of the modern LGBTQIA movement), it seems fair and necessary to highlight several films which have helped to document the history of the queer community.

The still-relevant pageantry of PARIS IS BURNING and THE QUEEN, the omnibus approach to the many skeins of LGBTQIA prehistory that BEFORE STONEWALL so lovingly documents, and the outside-looking-in way that A BIGGER SPLASH explores the life of a gay artist whose work is accepted by the straight world but who remains an unprocessable enigma—each of these classics provides a meaningful look at the expansive palette of queer life, and each is a fascinating journey. The Belcourt’s Queer Qlassics is an invitation to explore these histories—and to spend some time in the dark with voices of all kinds who still have much to teach us.
