Wicked Queer is the name of the 10-day LGBT Film Festival in Boston. It kicked off on March 31st and will run until April 10th.

I went to see the screening of the movie Carol at Emerson’s Bright Family Screening Room at the Paramount on Tuesday night.

By 6:45 p.m., the lobby at the Paramount had a long line weaving around the room. Stephanie Morrison and Amanda Wade came from work to see the movie.

“I wanted to see the movie anyways so it was very convenient that it was here, and it was free!” said Morrison.

This is the 32nd annual Boston LGBT Film Festival, making it the fourth oldest in North America. It was founded in 1984 by film programmer George Mansour.

The festival’s mission is to “foster a greater sense of awareness and diversity among the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender communities and allied audiences.”
