SQIFF 2019
SQIFF Shorts: Queer Spaces

Fri 4 October 2019

How does queer visibility transform physical and symbolic space? What roles do specific spaces have in altering the way that we navigate and represent ourselves in public? Why are alternatives to heteronormative space important for our communities?

In this collection of shorts, we explore what ‘home’ and ‘public space’ means to the LGBTQIA+ communities of Paris; join a young trans man as he navigates gendered space on the Delhi metro; and follow the campaign to save one of London’s most iconic queer spaces, the Joiner’s Arms.
