As queer communities strive to embrace intersectional politics, those with a disability or functional diversity are often left behind. This programme presents an exciting selection of work by and about functionally diverse filmmakers exploring the intersections of queerness and disability. Followed by a discussion with guest speakers to be announced.

Ages 18+ only.

Content note: discussion of violence, including sexual violence.

Ticket prices are on a sliding scale. Choose between free, £2, £4, £6, or £8 depending on what you can afford. No proof of your situation will be asked for.
