This event takes place at Hallwalls Contemporary Arts Center. Launched in 2013, REEL Queer is more than just film showings–it’s a community! Now in its second season, REEL Queer has broadened its community partnerships to include Squeaky Wheel and the Pride Center of WNY, in addition to maintaining its preexisting relationship with founding partner Hallwalls Contemporary Arts Center.
In Uganda, a new bill threatens to make homosexuality punishable by death. David Kato, Uganda’s first openly gay man, and retired Anglican Bishop Christopher Senyonjo work against the clock to defeat state-sanctioned homophobia while combatting vicious persecution in their daily lives. But no one is prepared for the brutal murder that shakes their movement to its core and sends shock waves around the world. There is a post-screening Skype Q&A featuring filmmakers Malika Zouhali-Worrall & Katherine Fairfax Wright.
