Our next Queer As Films programme, is a public outreach one, hoping to help the non-queer population understand our cause and build allies with them. Queer As Films is a monthly film screening at The Annexe Gallery presented by PT Foundation and Seksualiti Merdeka, with the aim of empowering the queer community.
The session is ON Sunday 07 March, at 4pm and 6pm at the Annexe Gallery.
At 4pm, we're screening The Naked Civil Servant, a charmingly funny made-for-TV film telling the story of Quentin Crisp, a British queer icon and writer, who was openly homosexual even in pre-WWII England and survived with nothing more than mascara, sharp wit and a sheer force of personality. John Hurt (The Elephant Man, V For Vendetta) stars in this career-defining award-winning role in this 1975 BBC classic. Film critic Benjamin McKay, who has met Quentin himself, and actor Edwin Sumun, our very own Quentin Crisp, will be on our panel to talk about gay icons and being out.
The 6pm film is Prayers For Bobby, a powerfully moving made-for-TV film telling the true story of Mary Griffith, a conservative Christian mom who has to come to terms with her gay son's suicide and her role in it. Sigourney Weaver stars as the mom, who eventually becomes a gay-rights advocate. For this film, we hope to have a panel of moms/dads/siblings willing to share about how they learn to accept their queer children/brothers/sisters.
