Drew Taylor-Wilson - Gather

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.

Drew says:

“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.”
