Drew Taylor-Wilson: Gather
Gather is a short visual film with poetic text by Drew Taylor-Wilson about what it means for queer people to gather in safe spaces.
Drew Taylor-Wilson is a writer, director and producer for screen and theatre, and a co-director of Sanctuary Queer Arts. They have created a short visual film with poetic text about what it means to gather in safe spaces when those spaces are under threat, inaccessible or closed due to lockdown.
“The mental health of queer people during this period of isolation dipped horribly and I count myself within that demographic. My film looks at what it means to gather, the safety you feel gathering in queer-centric places, and the impact the pandemic has had when these spaces to gather were closed, when they presented absolutely vital sanctuaries in such a dark time.”
