As gay issues and subjects become more and more a part of everyday mainstream culture, has it become redundant to classify films as “gay” or “lesbian”? Is it more legitimate to shun these labels, or are there actually advantages to embracing these identifiers? A panel of filmmakers and experts discuss these concerns, considering both films in the Festival and broader contexts.
