QFest: The Same Difference

When: Wed., April 27, 5 p.m. 2016

LGBTQ people face discrimination from outside their community and from within, as shown in Nneka Onuorah's documentary The Same Difference. Onuorah takes viewers inside the world of black lesbians and bisexuals, which is stratified along gender roles. Black lesbians who identify as studs discriminate against those who wear make-up, and vice versa, while black bisexuals are marginalized by both groups. The Same Difference features frank discussions on the hypocrisy of the animus felt by members of all three groups, as well as insights from queer celebrities Felicia "Snoop" Pearson and Lea DeLaria. The documentary screens at 5 p.m. tonight at the Hi-Pointe Backlot (1002 Hi-Pointe Place; www.cinemastlouis.org/qfest) as part of Cinema St. Louis' Qfest. Tickets are $12.
