Movie Info:
Queerama is a film created from the treasure trove of BFI archive. The story traverses a century of gay experiences, encompassing persecution and prosecution, injustice, love and desire, identity, secrets, forbidden encounters, sexual liberation and pride. The soundtrack weaves the lyrics and music of John Grant and Hercules & Love Affair with the images that intimately into the relationships, desires, fears and expressions of gay men and women in the 20th century-  a century of incredible change.

Starting with the first gay film released in 1919, Different From the Others, Queerama offers a wealth of unknown newsreel and amateur film from the 20s and 30s, the sub textual references in 40s cinema, the arrests and prosecutions of gay men for ‘gross indecency’ in the 50s, the early gay rights marches and decriminalisation of the 60s and 70s, the campaigns for an equal age of consent and against section 28,  the Pride movement and AIDS crisis in the 80s and 90s, the sexual liberation of the 00s queer and transgender scene and the chemsex, gay parenting and marriage recent campaigns.

The team behind Queerama includes award-winning film maker Daisy Asquith (After the Dance, Greatest Motherf**ker), producer Catryn Ramasut (Separado! and American Interior), editors Kenny McCracken and Alan Mackay (How to Change the World) and Campbell X (Stud Life, Different for Girls).

A heartening celebration of progress and a cautionary
reminder of all the broken lives and lonely hearts trampled.
