International Movie Fests that Celebrate LGBT to Watch this Month

ImageAfter reading essays from famous theologists Kosofsky Sedgwick, Judith Butler, and Lauren Berlant, it influenced me to narrow down a list of great film festivals to see this August. As an avid supporter of gay Community and Equal Rights in the University, I am proud to kick off with pride raising the emblematic rainbow flag of LGBTs by making a compilation of best movie galas to watch out in different states and regions across the world that aims to elevate queer visibility, understanding, appreciation and awareness through motion pictures.
