About the event

Join us for a screening of the award-winning documentary, Reel In The Closet.

Often set against the backdrop of the headline moments of the last century, this documentary is queer history from the perspective of queer people. Rare and intimate, this collection of home videos will take you into the personal and human moments of the everyday queer people that have created LGBT history.

Following the screening there will be a discussion and Q&A with the filmmaker Stu Maddux and Dr. Jacqueline Gahagan the Dalhousie University Chair of the Queer Faculty and Staff Caucus in Halifax.

This screening is copresented by Dalhousie University’s Queer Faculty & Staff Caucus, Dalhousie University LGBT Archives, and Nova Scotia Rainbow Senior Archive.

During the event we will be giving a special sneak peak of our upcoming film, All The Lonely People. This film examines the growing epidemic of isolation and loneliness.

Introduction by Producer, Joseph Applebaum.

Film screening (1 hr)

Discussion and Q&A with Director, Stu Maddux and the Dalhousie University Chair of the Queer Faculty and Staff Caucus, Dr. Jacqueline Gahagan
