The five Thai queer films presented in the program were made in different years under different circumstances and social terms. From 2002, 2005, 2012, 2014, and 2017, these films inform the audiences of Thailand’s shifting social, cultural, and political landscape as well as the evolution of contemporary cinematic storytelling and editing.

Coming out to a parent is never easy. Mother and child relationship is one of the most complicated matter for many people. As we grew up in different time and space, we often have contradicting ideas and values in life. We want the best for each other, but our actions may not produce the same result. We also naturally yearn for our mother's approval in everything we do, especially when it comes to coming in terms with our gender identity.
