Presented as part of Birmingham Indian Film Festival, our super-hit ‘Too Desi Too Queer’ shorts programme explores the lives, experiences and wellbeing of South Asian LGBTQIA+ communities in the Subcontinent and diaspora, through a dynamic and thought-provoking selection of recent LGBTQIA+ short films.
Funded by the Arts Council England, following the film showings, we present a live performance by dancer and storyteller Ash Mukherjee, exploring his youthful inspirations and Queerness, from Bollywood classics to a rich diversity of other inspirations.
The event will be followed by a panel discussion.
