Today, lesbian and, especially, gay identity are increasingly co-opted by capitalist institutions, eroding their radical potential. For many, these labels are now synonymous with a privileged, English-speaking, white, urban consumer in their twenties or early thirties. This selection invites you to imagine what lies beyond these narrow and exclusionary boundaries by screening the lives of queer people, who are rendered invisible in mainstream culture due to their age.
