Sing And Fight! Queer Film Night

About Sing And Fight! Queer Film Night

Floating drag queens, singing fish, safer sex commercials by famous artists; these are just some of the ways that AIDS activism and LGBT liberation is explored in this one-off screening of musical films, some never shown before in the UK.

SCREENING OF 80s/90s QUEER ACTIVIST MUSICAL FILMS WITH Q&A
A film screening at Deep End: Artists’ Space, Glasgow showcasing the absurd, political and queer musical films of John Greyson. The first event in Glasgow from Edinburgh Artists' Moving Image Festival - EAMIF , organised in collaboration with HIV Scotland and Pollyanna queer cabaret.

Alongside rarely shown musical short films from the 1980s, the event centres on clips from Zero Patience (1993). The film uses the unlikely form of song and dance to tell the story of the unfairly stigmatised, supposed ‘patient zero’ of the AIDS epidemic in North America. The films are as ridiculous as they are moving and (as our screening in Edinburgh showed) they will probably make you both laugh and cry.

Q&A
Followed by a Skype Q&A with the director in Canada, plus in-person conversation with HIV Scotland hosted by Miss Annabel Sings.

Miss Annabel Sings is an activist, video artist, and Edinburgh’s Queen of Queer Cabaret, who works with Artlink Edinburgh and in NHS hospitals, using the power of performance to enact positive change for people living with dementia and mental health.
