Over the years, Palm Springs has been many things to many people. An escape for the Hollywood elite, the playground of the Rat Pack, an oasis for the LGBTQ community. Greater Palm Springs offers a diverse line-up of events throughout the year and coming up in just a few weeks, Cinema Diverse will present its 12th Annual LGBTQ Film Festival. Presenting the best in gay, lesbian and transgender cinema, Cinema Diverse offers a chance to see award-winning films and shorts at theaters in both Palm Springs and Cathedral City, over two weekends.
Under a democracy where LGBT rights are currently under fire, events like the LGBTQ Film Festival here in Palm Springs become more important than ever. Bringing together film artists, film lovers, distributors, writers, directors, producers, actors and other industry professionals, the Palm Springs LGBTQ Film Festival aims to put together a world-class film forum with unity and strength as its focus. Through powerful story telling, movies have the ability to remind us where we came from and who we can be, they have the ability to both enrich and transform the lives of those within the gay community and outside as well.
Read on below to see five of our top picks for films to watch at this year’s 12th Annual LGBTQ Film Festival.
