Audre Lorde Remembered

Black lesbian feminist poet Audre Lorde framed political struggle for a generation of women in Europe and USA. It is difficult to overestimate her legacy. To mark twentieth anniversary of her death, Fringe Film Festival 2012 screened ‘Audre Lorde: The Berlin Years 1984- 1992’. The response to the film highlighted the importance of Lorde’s legacy. Denise O’Connor and Betiel Baraki have captured some of the atmosphere for us.

Arthur and Oscar: An interview with Anne Gaelan

In a book reviewing the life and work of Oscar Wilde, Arthur Ransome (author of Swallows and Amazons) described the persecuted writer as “a great man”. Little did he know, the book would lead to him being sued by Wilde’s lover, and shunned by society. Local filmmaker Anne Gaelan speaks about the short film she created chronicling the event, and how she hopes it’ll shed a light on LGBTQ+ matters throughout history.
