Queer Film Summer Sessions Course



LGBTS 183: Queer Film will be offered during UCLA Summer Sessions A. This course will explore the construction of LGBTQIA subjectivities through film, specifically, the films screened during the annual OutFest Queer Film Festival that takes place in Los Angeles within the 6-week period of summer session A; this year, from July 7-17, 2016. We will read about queer cinema, attend film screenings at OutFest, blog about our experiences, and create a final original 3-minute video poem about how sexuality constructs our own subjectivity. As an option, the course will offer a service-learning component to those students who wish to volunteer for OutFest.
About OutFest: Founded by UCLA students in 1982, Outfest is the world’s leading organization that promotes equality by creating, sharing, and protecting LGBT stories on the screen.
