Queer Women of Color Film Festival 2017

QWOCMAP’s 13th annual Queer Women of Color Film Festival will premiere 28 films in 4 screenings. The “Beloved Community” Festival Focus includes an “Unleash The Power” conversation on collective self-care for challenging political times. From the resilient wisdom of LBTQ people of color to the power of prayer for a young Muslim woman and a young Black Christian woman, these films encourage communities to find their squad and unleash their superpowers to create change. All films are Subtitled for the Deaf & Hard-of-Hearing and ASL interpretation will be provided along with many other forms of disability access.
