Join us for a SHAG week screening of an iconic LGBT+ film – of course, there are so many that we just couldn’t decide, so instead you get to vote! Free popcorn included.
Keep an eye out on our social media for the poll to vote for the film you want to see. Your choices are:
It’s the summer of 1984 – Margaret Thatcher is in power and the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) is on strike. At the Gay Pride March in London, a group of gay and lesbian activists decides to raise money to support the families of the striking miners.
They identify a mining village in deepest Wales and set off to make their donation in person. And so begins the extraordinary true story of two seemingly alien communities who form a surprising and ultimately triumphant partnership.
The film adaption of Jonathan Larson’s 1996 Broadway musical, this rock opera tells the story of one year in the life of a group of bohemians struggling in East Village New York.
The story centres around Mark and Roger, two roommates. While a former tragedy has made Roger numb to life, Mark tries to capture it through his attempts to make a film. In the year that follows, the group deals with love, loss, AIDS, and modern day life in one truly powerful story.
A young Black man grapples with his identity and sexuality while experiencing the everyday struggles of childhood, adolescence, and burgeoning adulthood.
Told across three time periods, this Oscar winning coming of age story shows the struggles our protagonist Chiron, or Little, faces growing up as a Black, queer man in modern America.
