Now celebrating the 16th year of Damn These Heels, the festival remains unscuffed – and shinier than ever – for all who want to celebrate our community’s diversity by sharing LGBTQ history, culture, ideas, struggles, and triumphs through film.
What started out as a handful of screenings has turned into the longest-running LGBTQ film festival in the Mountain West, an immersive weekend festival that has presented more than 220 thought-provoking and entertaining films over the years including Quiet Heroes, Southwest of Salem, Todrick Hall: Behind the Curtain, The Pearl, Strike a Pose, Kiki, G.B.F., God’s Own Country, The Slippers, Boulevard, Beginners, Summer of Sangaile, and Tangerine.
