Queer Lives. We got history. Remembering the spots, the pot, and the round the way folks that are part of the fabric of our community. Curated by Shawn P. Cotter.

Because You're Here — Directed by Mike Syers
A seemingly simple portrait of a town fixture gives way to a revealing personal history as rich, complicated, and joyful as its New England backdrop.

Into Man's Country — Directed by Matthew Purifoy
Gay men have long been persecuted for how they have sex. While public/private saunas and baths have existed for centuries, the formation of gay baths in the United States in the mid 20th century played a critical role in providing a safe and private space for gay men to discover themselves. With the HIV/AIDS epidemic and the advent of social media platforms like Grindr, the number and influence of the baths has diminished today, yet their significance and influence on a generation of gay men persists. Through the voices of those with personal lived experience, Into Man’s Country delves into the secretive and intimate world of the gay bathhouse during the ‘70s, from the euphoric rush of a quick unfettered sexual encounter to the establishment of lasting personal relationships.

Fighting Two Wars: The Story of Thalia Jane Ainsley — Directed by Aaron Curtis
Fighting Two Wars: The Story of Thalia Jane Ainsley features the story of Thalia Jane Ainsley, a Vietnam war veteran who transitioned into a woman later in life.

The Secret Story: How Medical Marijuana Was Re-Legalized in the US — Directed by Brian Applegarth
A short film about the inspiring true story of renegade gay hippy pot kingpin Dennis Peron and patient advocate Brownie Mary in their quest for medical cannabis legalization.

A Great Ride — Directed by Deborah Craig
«A Great Ride” is a documentary about older lesbians aging with dynamism and zest for life. When they were young these women forged a social movement to come out as true to themselves. Now they are pioneers once again as they face the next daunting challenge: growing old, which can come with frailty, loneliness, and the death of dear friends. In this group portrait, these women are courageous role models for aging, which they do with determination, engagement, an independent and irreverent spirit and a heartening delight in living.

The Real Dillah (Do Lado Dillah) — Directed by Washington Calegari
After 25 years on stage, the creator of the famous Brazillian drag queen Dillah Dilluz faces difficulty to find work, besides prejudice and exclusion within his family. An intimate portrait of a restless artist who „invents his own joy.“
