Queer Love on Screen
The VAFF will present an episode from season three of Netflix’s Dear White People that follows a group of students of color at Winchester University, a predominantly white Ivy League college. The episode focuses on Lionel and his attempt to convince D’unte and friends that he’s ready for the gay “deep end.” An episode from the TV series Falling for Angels, in which men explore facets of modern-day relationships against the backdrop of Los Angeles neighborhoods, will also be presented. The episode follows Kevin, a young Taiwanese American, who grew up in a traditionally white American neighborhood but begins to have a different understanding of his heritage after meeting Gino, an adopted Korean American. Discussion with writer Steven J. Kung, moderated by Alonso Duralde (The Wrap)
