LGBTQ films in Bangkok

Post by ก้นconnoisseur » Mon Jun 10, 2019 8:38 pm

The Taiwan LGBTQ Film Festival in Bangkok opened on Saturday with a screening of Small Talk (日常對話), a documentary by Huang Hui-chen (黃惠偵) detailing her relationship with her mother. After the screening, a forum was hosted by Jay Lin (林志杰), founder and chief executive of Taipei-based Portico Media and founder of LGBTQ streaming platform GagaOOLala, to highlight the steps that Taiwan went through to legalize same-sex marriage. The week-long festival was curated by Chen Yen-lin (陳彥霖), Alliance Francaise de Bangkok and the Documentary Club, and aims to highlight the development of Taiwan’s LGBTQ rights and same-sex-marriage legislation. Films in the festival include Blue Gate Crossing (藍色大門), Queer Taiwan (酷兒台灣), Tale of the Lost Boys (他和他的心旅程), Juliets and I Don’t Want to Sleep Alone (黑眼圈), a 2006 Malaysian-Taiwanese romantic drama written and directed by Tsai Ming-liang (蔡明亮).

Thanks for the information. Unfortunately it is really hard to find the details in English about which films are featured on each day and where the films are being screened. Even getting the detail in Thai requires checking quite a few sites. From what I can gather, there are 5 days left. Unfortunately one of the movies did have English sub-titles but we have missed that screening. The next showing has only Thai sub-titles as mentioned below.

Thanks for the excellent follow-up research fountainhall. All I had to go by was that short blurb but I thought I should post it in case anyone was interested. Too bad it did not appear in the news until it had already started.
