A new generation of LGBT
animators brings liberated voices to the silver screen! Queer Gaze is the
touchstone for this first-of-its-kind collection... Life as seen through queer
eyes: The solitary revolution of fearlessly falling in love with one's own
body. Unexpected attraction and the heart that dares to open wide. Awkward
first attempts at holding hands in public. Open-mouthed kisses after midnight
on a sultry summer night. The press of skin against skin — and family members'
ridiculous interrogations over Sunday dinner. Transitioning into the rightness
of a body that has been absent in the mirror. Claiming "other" in a
world that insists on Either/Or. The unapologetic, sex-positive details of what
it's like to be a woman dating a stripper girlfriend.
The Queer Animation
Revolution has arrived... Lesbian, Gay, Bi/Pan, Trans*, Gender Fluid, and
Non-Binary folk are claiming cinema space. And the truly radical thing? When
silence is broken, shame shed, love embraced, and old labels kicked to the
curb, everyone's freedom expands.
