"A moving meditation on gay life today." - David France Academy Award nominee HOW TO SURVIVE A PLAGUE
About The Film
Four decades after the Stonewall riots, life is dramatically different for LGBTQ people. We used to be identified by our oppression. But who are we now?
The city that gave birth to the gay movement has changed, too. What are the untold stories of a culture that thrives in every borough and every corner of the city?
Queer City explores these and other questions through the lives of a highly diverse group of men and women living in New York City. The film cannot, of course, represent every aspect of LGBTQ life, and that's not our goal. Rather, we are bringing together a selection of stories to offer a compelling portrait of new American lives.
This is a feature-length exploration of the ways we live now. It also offers a glimpse of the future of gay America. The community still contends with villains and fierce opposition, even in the most cosmopolitan of cities, and many bear lasting scars from those conflicts.
Queer City incorporates both the routine and the extraordinary to create a remarkable chronicle of queer citizens in a time of change. Often hilarious, sometimes heartbreaking, Queer City will introduce you to stories and people you will never forget.
