Celebrating Queer Film

It was just one of those days. My laptop has been threatening to die for awhile, and today was finally the day. I’ve been working in the cloud for awhile, so this wasn’t a traumatic event — but not without its challenges.

I couldn’t remember a login to the Q – The Network and for some god forsaken reason, I chose some made up email that I never use or could remember. An hour or so later, I figured out the twisted thought process and thus the email in question to be able to finally log in.

Celebrating Queer Film

Today, I finished updating the LGBTQ Film Festival calendar through the end of the year.

https://q-thenetwork.mn.co/events

https://seasonsofpride.com/gay-lesbian-film-festival-calendar/

Sadly, many fall festivals have yet to announce dates.

If you know a festival we’ve missed or dates, drop a line at info@seasonsofpride.com

Tomorrow we will be updating September 2017 Pride events.

As always — there are daily queer news items and LGBTQ job postings.

Celebrating Queer Film


Seasons of Pride is pleased to present the Gay Pride or LGBTQ Pride Calendar for 2017.  You will find Gay Pride events, LGBT Film Festivals, and the Gay Travel Events like Gay Ski Weeks. We do our best to try and keep up with all the events, but sometimes we miss one or two.

If your event is not listed, just drop us an email to info@seasonsofpride.com

You may have learned that our reach has recently broadened to include sister organizations overseas, but there are still many countries in which the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender community is still demonized. All you have to do is looked at the news from Russia and the current attitude toward and treatment of gay men and women by the Russian government.
  • Q Cinema: Fort Worth’s Gay & Lesbian International Film Festival – QCinema is Fort Worth’s source for the best in gay and lesbian film. Founded in 1998 by Shawn Moore and Todd Camp, QCinema’s early origins included occasional community screenings and a film discussion group at Texas Christian University before Moore suggested that it be expanded into a full-fledged, four-day festival in July of 1999.
