Event Cinemas, George St
An autistic, trans teen learns to be himself with the help of his supportive mother. Two Chinese-American teenage girls bond in a restaurant bathroom while avoiding awkward family dinners. A young lesbian drag king reconnects with her Orthodox Jewish parents. An Indian-American teen explores their relationship to gender identity through traditional dance. An asexual student discovers their roommate has made them a dating profile. Together these relatable films represent a whole spectrum of the queer youth experience.
This fun and affirming package of short films about LGBTIQ+ youths is perfect for younger viewers – and those who remain young at heart.
Content warning: contains discussions of transphobia and misgendering

The MGFF23 Supportix Program supported by American Express
Queer Screen recognises that there are many barriers our community faces when it comes to attending our events, so we have created the Supportix program. Supportix is intended for those who are facing social or economic barriers to accessing film festival tickets and enables Queer Screen to give 2 free tickets to those unable to buy their own. Supportix looks and acts like regular film tix, and requesting Supportix is super simple. Terms and conditions apply. To access email email@example.com.
