It’s that time of year again for us lucky Londoners to soak up the best of queer film culture thanks to the London Lesbian and Gay Film Festival. Now in it’s 27th year, the films are split into three handy sections: Hearts, Bodies and Minds, to help you find the films you like, whether it’s short films, feature length dramas, documentary, or archive classics that capture your imagination.
The Festival opens with the European Premiere of a great new documentary: I am Divine, about the life and legend of the extraordinary actor, drag queen, performer and singer born Harris Glen Milstead in Baltimore but known to the wider world as Divine.
A brief survey of highlights has to include James Franco who co-directs and stars in Interior. Leather Bar., hot from the Sundance Film Festival; an Oscar-nominated documentary How to Survive a Plague and a powerful account of LGBT life in Jamaica in Taboo Yardies.
