Ahead of this year’s Q-Film Weekender, we celebrate the best LGBTQIA+ cinema from the past year. Wanuri Kahiu‘s beautiful film Rafiki follows the development of love between two young women. Their Magnetic pull draws us into a queer “Romeo and Juliet” romance, as they try to hide their relationship from their fathers.
