Queerly Beloved: Pride Shorts in the Park

Dearly beloved, our Queerly Beloved program makes its grand return to Fort Greene Park! Come celebrate NYC PRIDE with a collection of our favorite new short films spotlighting the LGBTQIA+ community. This year’s lineup boldly explores the depth and breadth of queer people, spaces, and relationships in New York and beyond! Don’t miss these whimsical portraits of home and our evolving understandings of family; an unconventional musical about the pitfalls of casual dating; awkward and intimate accounts of burgeoning sexuality; and an unflinching fever dream exploration of sex, loneliness, the internet, and cat emojis. Presented in partnership with New York City Council Member Crystal Hudson and the Fort Greene Park Conservancy.
