Queer Film Club is brought to you by The London Borough of Newham, Royal Docks, and BFI London, in partnership and produced by Social Convention.

We are also very excited to be working with Ben Walters, Queer Film Critic/Journalist and Founder of The Badge Cafe(opens in a new tab), who will be leading badge making workshops around the theme of the selected film that month.

Each club will take place on the last Friday of the month, starting in April-Nov.

Programme inlcudes:

Club 1: Hedwig and Angry Inch (Dir. John Cameron Mitchell, USA, 2001)

A gender-queer punk-rock singer from East Berlin tours the U.S. with her band as she tells her

life story and follows the former lover/bandmate who stole her songs.

Club 2: Appropriate Behaviour (Dir. Desiree Akhavan, UK, 2014) (Peccadillo Pictures)

Shirin is struggling to become an ideal Persian daughter, politically correct bisexual and hip

young Brooklynite but fails miserably in her attempt at all identities. Being without a cliché to

hold onto can be a lonely experience.

Club 3: Tangerine (Dir. Sean Baker, USA, 2015)

A hooker tears through Tinseltown on Christmas Eve searching for the pimp who broke her

heart.

Club 4: Young Soul Rebels (Dir. Derek Saldaan, UK, 1991) (Peccadillo Pictures)

Two disc jockeys have a friend's murder to solve in the fringe-group melting pot of 1977 London.

Harry has been partying for 48 hours when he meets Johannes on the dance floor of a club in

Berlin. With 15 hours until his flight home, Johannes offers to help him print his boarding pass.

This mundane task leads to a day together wandering the city. The contrasts in their lives and

values force each one to confront their own truths. Boys Meet Boys is a feature-length

mumblecore about the journey of a brief encounter: the mark left by a fleeting moment of joy.

Club 6: Paris Is Burning (Dir. Jennie Livingston, USA, 1990)

A chronicle of New York's drag scene in the 1980s, focusing on balls, voguing and the ambitions

and dreams of those who gave the era its warmth and vitality.

A young black lesbian filmmaker probes into the life of The Watermelon Woman, a 1930s black

actress who played 'mammy' archetypes.

Marina, a transgender woman who works as a waitress and moonlights as a nightclub singer, is
