We're big horror fans but feel that LGBTQ+ characters are hugely ignored in this genre. Thelma felt like a refreshing, modern-day take on the classic female horror protagonist but with a much needed and long awaited queer edge.

 

Synopsis

Thelma is a coming-of-age supernatural thriller from acclaimed Norwegian director, Joachim Trier. The film follows the sexual awakening of a lonely introverted teen as she battles feelings of confusion, repression and desire. Thelma is a film marked with religious symbolism and classic Nordic bleakness that exploits a long assumed connection of female sexuality to hysteria.

 

Short Film Synopsis - Out by Gsus Lopez

Mary (Jeff Kristian) is a divorced middle-aged mother living in a small English town. One weekend she receives the visit of her closet-emerging son Oscar. How will Mary make sense of her son's coming out and the small-town mentality that surrounds her?

Blending high-drama theatrics with black comedy, OUT is a coming out story unlike any other you have seen before.
