This panel focuses on the significance of queer representation in art. The discussion will address the methodologies of representing queerness in film in comparison with the methodologies used by various other artistic media. Queer Spectra Arts Festival is dedicated to showcasing arts from multiple LGBTQIA+ perspectives. They hope to challenge and contribute to contemporary understanding of queer discourse while promoting a nuanced conversation between artists and audiences about queer identity and art.
