Indigiqueer Shorts from Turtle Island & Aotearoa

“I think I used it because some LGBTQ Indigenous people don’t feel as comfortable with the two-spirit title…I know a lot of people don’t ID with the Queer label either. But I liked the idea of Indigiqueer” – Thirza Cuthand

Coined in 2004 by Thirza Cuthand, the term Indigiqueer is a way for queer Indigenous folks to identify themselves and their queerness. This cinematic collection showcases how versatile two-spirit/Indigiqueer life is. Join us for a mix of narrative and experimental works that defies colonial expressions of queerness.
