Part of: Queer Media Festival 2018
Deep In Vogue celebrates the colourful, queer, emotional and political stories of Northern Vogue and its people. Synonymous with the black, gay ballrooms of 1980s New York this documentary asks why we need Vogue in Manchester now more than ever.
Short film screening alongside this feature film: Femme
Femme is a short film about Carson, a gay twenty-something looking for love on all the wrong apps. After being rejected by an online hook-up for being too “femme”, Carson embarks on a hilarious journey towards self-discovery and acceptance by way of a manic existential crisis and a drag queen fairy godmother. Set in Hell’s Kitchen, the epicentre of New York City gay life, Carson must confront his own notions of masculinity and gender performance within the LGBTQ community and beyond.
