The Louisiana LGBT Film Festival seeks to hear voices from all members of the LGBT Community and allies. We want to hear YOUR voice, see things through YOUR lens.

Seeing the world through the lens of awareness, acceptance, love, and empowerment...

Thank you for being with us in our third year! We have had some amazing live and virtual events and looking forward to keeping the party going in 2021.

We began on June 28th 2019 - Fifty years after the first Stonewall riots, to give a voice to filmmakers who felt they didn't belong in the mainstream. We honour filmmaker and trans activist Chloe- Deloach Davis who took her own life after relentless abuse.

Every year we bring honour to those who live with love in their hearts.

Thank you for being here - you are not alone.
