Queerly Beloved: Moonlight
A vital part of LGBTQ cinema history, Moonlight has also cemented its place in the mainstream film world as an Oscar Best Picture winner, the first with an all-Black cast, and the first LGBTQ-related film to take home the prize. Based on Tarell Alvin McCraney’s unpublished semi-autobiographical play In Moonlight Black Boys Look Blue, Barry Jenkins’s film is a groundbreaking exploration of a young black man’s identity as he struggles to find his place as an outsider in a rough Miami neighbourhood.
Queerly Beloved is presented in partnership with Paradise.
