Rest in power Larry Kramer. ✊ Playwright of 'The Normal Heart', and fierce outspoken gay activist, who exemplified the power of our voices. His activism helped end the silence and stigma of HIV/AIDS, which led to changes in health policy in the 1980s and ’90s, saving countless lives. "I was trying to make people united & angry. I was known as the angriest man in the world, mainly because I discovered that anger got you further than being nice." RIP Larry Kramer (June 25, 1935 - May 27, 2020) #larrykramer #ThankYouLarry
Happy Pansexual Visibility Day to our pan friends, a day for our community to uplift, elevate and celebrate those who identify as pansexual. We see you and we love you 💗💛💙
Every year we have an incredible team of 150 volunteers generously give their time and support to help MQFF make our festival the best it can be, many returning year after year. Without our volunteers, we simply could not bring our queer stories to the screen. To our volunteers over the last 30 years, you have our endless thanks and gratitude. Happy #NationalVolunteerWeek! ❤️💗🙌🙏🎉🌈🥰❤️ Photo: Teague Leigh, from #MQFF30 Opening Night.
