Meet Ray – our new Screen Queens movie reviewer

We are really excited and proud to be working with Open Doors for the rest of the year to improve accessibility and awareness of our Screen Queens program. Thanks to Brisbane Pride Festival‘s support under the Kal Collins Memorial Fund we are offering multiple free double passes to people from Open Doors (young LQBTQIA+ folk in Brisbane – email giveaways[at]hotchickswithbigbrains.com) and we’re paying one special person to be our new Screen Queens reviewer!

It’s our absolute pleasure to introduce you to Ray. For the next three films we show at Metro Arts this year, Ray will be writing up a review for our blog afterwards.

Hi I’m Ray, nonbinary and bisexual. I’m a serial hobbiest, artist and urban gardener in training. My interests include disability, mental health, intersectional feminism and LGBTQ+ rights and equality.

Look out for Ray’s work on the site this year. Here are the details of our next movie night:

1970s San Francisco. Fifteen-year-old cartoonist Minnie is spurred by her sexual awakening to become involved with her mother’s boyfriend. Lush, funny, and sometimes so close-to-the bone, the film plays out issues around adolescence, family and female sexuality without judgement. Too few people saw this film in 2015 so we’re excited for you all to see it now.
