Stonewall UK and Andaz London Liverpool Street Hotel are delighted to announce this LGBT themed film weekend for Stonewall Season!

Following a sold out series of screenings in the our eerie, hidden Masonic Temple earlier this year, and to celebrate Stonewall Season, we're partnering with the East End Film Festival and VICE Media to screen two days of LGBT films in the Masonic Temple on Friday 4th November & Sunday 6th November, with all proceeds going to Stonewall. Tickets are £10.

 

Friday 4th November the East End Film Festival presents A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge

When A Nightmare on Elm Street became an unexpected smash hit, the birth of a horror classic also spawned a huge number of sequels to Wes Craven's terrifying original. What was less predictable was that A Nightmare on Elm Street 2 would also be one of the gayest mainstream horror films ever made. Following a young man named Jesse who battles with Freddy Kruger when his family moves to Elm Street, this is classic 1980s slasher fare, but with a twist: all the victims are male, Jesse seems to prefer his best friend to his girlfriend, there's terror in the locker room... and that's not even mentioning a visit to a particular type of nightclub. A one off example of Hollywood (unintentionally) green lighting a script intentionally laden with gay subtext, don't miss the chance to see this classic gay horror landmark on the big screen, in the most spectacular of settings.

 

 

Sunday 6th November VICE Media presents three original short documentaries each introduced by people behind the films.

Young and Gay: In Putin’s Russia introduced by Milène Larsson (Filmaker)

When Russian President Vladimir Putin passed anti-gay ‘propaganda’ legislation in the summer of 2014, the country effectively institutionalised homophobia throughout the nation and turned Russia's LGBT population into full-blown enemies of the state. The all-pervasive law systematically dismantled basic human rights, blocking LGBT people from accessing support or legal help in every aspect of Russian society and led to a sharp rise in homophobic attacks and hate crime.

Ahead of the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics, VICE News travelled to Russia to investigate the effects of the country's state-sanctioned homophobia on Moscow’s LGBT youth, meeting leading gay rights activists, Putin’s spin doctor, the lawmaker behind the repressive legislation and the individuals protesting against their own government for the right to live freely and without fear.

Young and Gay: Jamaica’s Gully Queens introduced by Christo Geoghegan (Host / Co-Producer)

VICE News travels to the sewers of New Kingston to meet the ‘Gully Queens’ – a group of young LGBTI Jamaicans forced out of family homes and into the underground dwellings of the capital by the constant threat of attack, rape and murder by anti-gay mobs.

In a country where the 'Buggery Law' still exists and carries a ten-year prison sentence, VICE News explores how young trans girls and gay men are leading the fight against Jamaica’s institutionalised homophobia through visibility and a fierce community spirit.

Gaycation: Japan introduced by Will Fairman (Series Producer)

GAYCATION follows best friends Ellen Page and Ian Daniel as they set off to explore LGBT cultures around the world, starting with Japan, where same-sex marriage is still not legal and LGBT couples often bear a social stigma. Despite the huge challenges, parts of the gay community continue to thrive in Japan’s vibrant culture and nightlife and in some cities, same-sex marriage is even starting to become recognised.

In a journey which includes getting ‘friendship-married’ at a Buddhist temple, working at a rent-a-friend agency and joining the party in the world’s smallest gay bar, Ellen and Ian find out what it's really like to identify as LGBT in Japan and meet some of the people struggling to find their voice in a country that refuses to give them equal rights under the law.
