LGBTQ FILM FESTIVAL 2 LGBTQ Film Festival Film festivals are simple and effective means of raising the level of public awareness about the challenges encountered during the current times and the existing social problems. These festivals are instrumental in the initiation of discussions and critical means of thinking, formulation of questions, and the comprehensive presentation of perspectives on distinct problems. As a modern audiovisual means, a film is an adept medium for presentation of information on a specified theme. Besides, a film can adequately make both direct and indirect impressions on the viewers by utilizing unique stories from the lives of real people. This paper presents the proposed film festival whose theme is LGBTQ. The objective of this festival is to educate people on various issues on LGBTQ. The audience will be composed of adults from different parts of the world, and the venue will exhibit the traditional event venues as it complements the LGBTQ theme. Media defines sexuality or sexual orientation. Additionally, media contributes greatly towards the way people perceive the role of sexuality in their identities, their history, their social institutions and their daily lives. Sexuality is a broad description of the physical and/or emotional attraction of an individual to a person of the opposite or same sex (Henningham, 2017). Typically, sexuality is classed into various identity categories including lesbian, gay, heterosexual, and bisexual. LGBTQ is an acronym for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender queer. This acronym references a diverse set of sexuality as well as the identities and communities that are based on gender. Media has been actively involved in the perpetuation for and resistance against the state of affairs of LGBTQ. The size of LGBTQ representation in the media since the 1990s has

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
