A Love Song For The Wild by Leo j Skilbeck

A Love Song For The Wild by Leo j Skilbeck 12Jun

A Homotopia Commission

A city-dweller spending lockdown back home on the family farm, can Leo j Skilbeck find queerness in the mundane everyday of rural life?

Join Leo as they put their heels up in a DIY queer bar, made exclusively of things they can spot from afar or get their (sanititized) hands on around the family farm. This sounds like an episode of CBeebies on poppers, and let’s face it, it just might be.

A short film, a poem, a love song to rural queerz hoping to spot someone else on the horizon.

 

Where to watch

The film launches on Friday 12 June on our YouTube channel and Facebook page. Follow us on Twitter for updates.
