FROM INDIE QUEER CINEMA TO THE HOLLYWOOD MAINSTREAM, THE PINK LENS PUTS THE DEPICTION OF LGBT+ PEOPLE IN CINEMA IN THE UK UNDER THE MICROSCOPE.
TOP 10 LGBT+ DOCUMENTARIES
An enthralling look at the timeline for LGBT+ people from the 1900s until the Stonewall Riots in the USA, this is a genuinely fascinating vintage documentary with scores of first-hand accounts from people no longer with us. An invaluable time capsule of the histories of Queer People, these are the voices of those who the History Books would otherwise have overlooked. Speaking of living and loving in secret during World War 2 and the earliest days of the twentieth century, we hear love stories alongside first-hand accounts of how community events were staged despite having to live clandestine lives, hidden by lies. Films like this can only underline how lucky we are to have come so far.
Directors: Greta Schiller, Robert Rosenberg
