As an organization, the Ohio Union Activities Board is committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion. This week's Flicks For Free movie screenings were chosen to highlight LGBTQ+ representation in the film industry over the years. While the films we chose are all respected works, we also recognize that they predominantly showcase the stories of gay, white men, which is not representative of the entire LGBTQ+ community. With limitations in place for virtual movie screenings, the Visual and Fine Arts Committee chose three films we felt best represented the LGBTQ+ community from the selection we have access to. In addition to these three films, we wanted to provide students with a list of productions and their respective streaming platforms that represent the diversity and tell the stories of LGBTQ+ community in a more encompassing way. Please visit us on Instagram and Twitter @OUAB for our list.
