OUTFEST FUSION: LGBT People of Color Film Festival

Outfest Fusion, a film festival dedicated to LGBT people of color, takes place this weekend, with workshops continuing through March 16th. The line up includes The Watermelon Woman, the iconic 1996 film by Cheryl Dunye, newer LGBT films such as Orientation by Jake Witzenfeld, which follows three gay Palestinians living in Tel-Aviv as they seek sexual freedom in a place that embraces their queerness but challenges their strong Arab identities, and Baby Steps, a “multicultural comedy-drama” about a Tawainese man who’s desire to have a child with his American partner is complicated by his mother all the way from Taipei. Workshops follow throughout the week on various topics from social media marketing  to making film with a smart phone.
