Care, Community, and Identity in Queer Cinema - NeMLA 2022

Whether from health crisis, family isolation, or governmental-social prejudice, care has always been an invaluable resource in queer communities, whether physical, psychological, or spiritual. This care manifests not only in physical forms, such as providing food and medicine, shelter for queer homeless populations, and access to health care, but also in the ability to connect with new modes of family and to fight in the broader struggle for queer rights and liberation. However, this care can become disrupted due to biases present within the mainstream queer community, such against queer people of color, queer women and gender non-conforming people, and queer people with disabilities.
