LGBT Britain: Britain on Film (PG)

LGBT BRITAIN AgeofDissent1.jpg

Including some of the earliest known representations of LGBT people on screen, this archival film explores the struggles and identity politics of the ‘80s and ‘90s; early AIDS victims recounting their painful experiences; the formation of the Gay Black Group, an early instance of intersectional thinking; and the 1980 fight for transgender rights in the European Court.

It’s a moving and fascinating social document encompassing both the collective public fight for basic rights and equality as well as personal, intimate and psychological ones.
