Albert (Thom Woodley) and Lisa (Vanessa Reseland) are two old friends from high school drama club. He lives in New York and writes video games, while Lisa has found herself in an entirely different reality. A chance meeting in Times Square leads them to spending a few hours of the afternoon together before she heads back to her real life. But during their walk downtown towards her car, both take the opportunity to reveal long-pent-up secrets they’ve hidden from the other. By the time they reach the end of Manhattan, neither of their lives will be the same.

Queer City
USA | 2015 | Documentary | 84 min | English
Four decades after the Stonewall riots exploded, life is dramatically different for LGBT people. Queer City shares untold first-person stories of an indomitable spirit that made every victory possible and kept a community moving forward after devastating losses. Queer City explores the lives of a highly diverse group of women and men living across New York City. The film cannot, of course, represent every aspect of LGBT life, but rather weaves together a selection of stories to offer a compelling portrait of queer lives.
