QWOCMAP’s annual Queer Women of Color Film Festival will premiere 35 films in three screenings, June 14-16, 2019. Our 15th anniversary Festival Focus “Resilient Past is Vibrant Prologue,” honors the everlasting power of queer women of color, and gender nonbinary and transgender people of color. From a young biracial Chinese woman whose home propels her into the world, to the voice of a Mexican American boy soaring with love, from two nonbinary Coptic Egyptian and Muslim Pakistani queer friends diving into community with food, to four Black trans women strutting through love, trade, and shade, these films charge through time and revel in our ability to thrive. All films Subtitled for the Deaf & Hard-of-Hearing. ASL interpretation provided.

The annual Queer Women of Color Film Festival is a FREE event. For information on how to register for tickets, visit qwocmap.org.
