“It’s time to get OUT!” screams the Reelout Queer Film Festival.

In its 18th installment, the festival brought nothing short of groundbreaking films to the Kingston community last week.

Originally established in 2000 by OPIRG, Reelout is a collective arts project that seeks to celebrate gender and sexual diversity in Kingston.

This year’s lineup hosted a wide array of genres from comedy to romance, and filmmakers from a variety of backgrounds, giving the festival an in-depth and intersectional approach to diversity.

We reviewed a couple of films and shorts from the festival, some of which made us laugh, while others made us cry. Nevertheless, the films left us with a unique perspective into these LGBTQ+ communities.
