Passionate about films since her student days, for her there
is little that can beat a couple of hours in a darkened cinema
with a quality film (and her girlfriend!). This is her 12th Mardi
Gras Film Festival as critic. Commenting on the Festival’s
role in Mardi Gras, Belinda said, “Over the years I’ve seen a
marked improvement in both the quantity and quality of lesbian
productions. The Festival is a vital part of Mardi Gras as not
only does it support and promote new talent, it showcases
films that may not be otherwise seen in Australia. Most
importantly it gives us a great opportunity to see ourselves
realistically depicted on the big screen”.
Dr Naomi Stead is a senior lecturer in architecture at the University
of Technology Sydney, and co-convenor of the conference ‘Queer
Space: Centres and Peripheries,’ to be held at UTS on February
20 and 21 as part of the Mardi Gras Cultural Festival. She spoke
to Professor Elspeth Probyn, who is one of the keynote speakers
at the conference. “She turned out to be as intelligent, charming
and groovy as her reputation had promised. A fascinating
conversationalist, Elspeth can shift seamlessly from talk of urban
planning to having your toenails painted, from the ‘eradication of
the gay face of Oxford Street’ to the problems of queer theory.
