This year's Glasgay looks at the representation of queer people now and in the past, counterpointing their experiences and offering fresh perspectives on the developing civil rights movement. There's a look at the influence of Hollywood stars, of alternative beauty contests, and of female filmmakers who challenged contemporary representations of women. There's also a chance to enjoy John Waters classic Polyester in full odorama.
