Queerfest marks LGBT History Month at FACT
21 January 2011
The mini film festival kicks off on the 7 February with the award-winning Paris is Burning (1990), the classic documentary about New York’s legendary drag balls. The screening will be accompanied by a special performance and introduction from renowned dancer, choreographer and artistic director, Darren Suarez and his dance company.\r\nQueerfest also celebrates the work of the legendary master of camp, John Waters, with a double bill of his classic, Pink Flamingos and its rarely seen sequel Female Trouble – both starring Waters’ muse, the drag queen, Divine.
Art lovers will be treated to a very special 16mm selection from Kenneth Anger’s Magick Lantern Cycle, as well as a documentary about legendary artist and social activist, Keith Haring. Plus we have the Northwest premiere of the French Jewish/Arab cross-dressing romance He is My Girl (2010).
We round things off with a big screen presentation of the classic, Some Like It Hot on 24 February, funds from which go towards this year’s Liverpool Pride. Book your tickets here.
