Telling Queer Stories Webinar and Welcome Event

This is a past event.

The Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences Gender, Sexuality, and Women's Studies Program invites the Pitt community to “Telling Queer Stories" which brings together two kinds of queer storytelling: the film-in-progress Thanks to Her and Pitt's Archival Education Project.

Thanks to Her won the 2021 Rising Voices Film Festival Award and garnered more than 600,000 views on YouTube, in part because of its treatment of sexuality, including asexuality, morphing sexuality, and experiences of LGBTQIA+ people across generations. The filmmakers, Pitt alums Sam Orlowski and Sam McCoy, began filming a feature-length expansion of the original premise in Pittsburgh this summer and will offer a sneak peak of some of the new material and the challenges posed by the expansion. While clips of the film will be shown, the entire short film can be viewed at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W0pr3gzO_Tk

Launched in 2020, the Pitt LGBTQ Archival Education Project involves Pitt students in telling and investigating stories about the pasts and futures of Pittsburgh’s LGBTQIA+ communities by drawing on archival materials.  Students working on the project take up questions of queer historiography and archival ethics as well as the challenges of understanding many dimensions of queer life and queer communities in our area.
