Welcome to QueerShots, the annual newsletter published by the students of Queer(ing) Film in the Women and Gender Studies Department of St. John Fisher University. With each issue, we will focus on queer and feminist film and the intersectional issues of gender, sex, sexuality, race, class, and ability that these films draw to our attention, particularly as they impact the LGBTQIA+ community here at Fisher, in Rochester, New York, and beyond. We will also report directly from the Image Out Film Festival, which since 1993, has been bringing the best new LGBTQIA+ cinema to Rochester every October. It is our hope that this newsletter will not only serve to expose more and more people to the important work being done by LGBTQIA+ filmmakers all over the world, but also to increase awareness and coalition among all communities who seek greater freedom and expression of who they are as human beings.
