Queers on the Verge: Experimental Works for Educational Environments
CFMDC Special Edition
DVD
This compilation brings together challenging and innovative film and video works that explore lesbian/gay/bi/trans culture by both Queer pioneers and emerging makers. It covers a broad range of subject matter including gender and sexual identity, social dynamics, coming out, the impact of AIDS, and Queer youth culture.


Queers on the Verge... is an excellent compilation of short subjects featuring contemporary gay, lesbian, and transgender themes. This DVD is highly recommended and will be a great catalyst for discussion in high school and colleges, not just to gay audiences. It should be accessible in all collections.” - Debra Mandel, Educational Media Reviews Online (http://libweb.lib.buffalo.edu/emro/emroDetail.asp?Number=2750)
