Shorts Program

Bless Your Queer Heart

Thursday October 24 @ 4:15 pm

This program will also screen on Saturday, 10/26 at 11:15am

As diverse as the region itself, this batch of shorts centering the experiences of LGBTQ Southerners will have you using “Ya’ll” as your go-to gender neutral pronoun in no time. From tender to terrifying, these six short films candidly consider queer and trans identity in the American South today.

Total Running Time: 94 min
