Real Boy

An intimate story of a family in transition. As 19-year-old Bennett Wallace navigates sobriety, adolescence, and the evolution of his gender identity, his mother makes her own transformation from resistance to acceptance of her trans son. Along the way, both mother and son find support in their communities, reminding us that families are not only given, but chosen.

Winner of the Audience Award for Best Documentary at the Frameline Film Festival.

“Poignant, raw, and incredibly heartfelt–a testament to the great filmmaking” – The Advocate

Eye on the Guy: Alan B Stone and the Age of Beefcake

Alan B. Stone: astute businessman, quiet suburbanite, and master of the homoerotic pin-up.

Eye on the Guy: Alan B. Stone & the Age of Beefcake explores the little-known world of Montreal’s physique photography scene, a distinct gay subculture that emerged in the ’50s and ’60s, through the life and work of one of its most creative figures. Operating under the social radar of post-war Canada, Stone produced thousands of images of men; from Montreal bodybuilders to Pacific coast fishermen, from rodeo cowboys to the construction workers who built Expo 67.

The Revival

This documentary chronicles the US tour of a group of Black lesbian poets and musicians, who become present-day stewards of a historical movement to build community among queer women of color. Their journey to strengthen their community is enriched by insightful interviews with leading Black feminist thinkers and historians.

As the group tours the country, the film reveals their aspirations and triumphs, as well as the unique identity challenges they face encompassing gender, race, and sexuality. This is a rarely seen look into a special sisterhood – one where marginalized voices are both heard and respected.

Official Selection at the Frameline Film Festival and at the Outfest Los Angeles LGBT Film Festival.

The Rift

In this Hitchcockian Thriller, when Gunnar receives a distraught phone call from his ex, he drives up to a secluded cabin to see him. He discovers that there’s more going on than he imagined. Someone is lurking outside and the two find that they are haunted by someone — or something.

Official Selection at Fantastic Fest. Winner of the Artistic Vision Award at L.A. Outfest. Winner of the Top Ten of the Year – Audience Award at the CinEuphoria Awards.

Oxford County Library

As it happened, the Oxford County Library, received a majority gay and lesbian (physical) books at the end of 2020. We are working to ensure our purchasing in 2021 is of broader inclusion to create a more balanced fiction collection with bisexual, transgender, pansexual, asexual and two-spirited.

I’ve put together a list of physical LGBTQ+ titles we received in late 2020. These books may be borrowed from any Oxford County Library branch. We are currently offering curbside pickup. If someone would like a library card they need only email myaccount@ocl.net to get signed up.

I would greatly appreciate if you would be able to share this poster as far and widely as possible.

Rainbow Sidewalk in Woodstock

“The Oxford County Pride Committee recognizes Community Futures Oxford for its financial support through the Community Economic Development Program towards the Rainbow Sidewalk, which provides not for profits in Oxford County with grants that catalyse economic activity in a number of priority areas.”

The Oxford County Pride committee is proud to announce we have worked hard advocating and fundraising to bring a rainbow cross to downtown Woodstock. This achievement would not have been possible wirhout the generous grant recieved by Community Futures Oxford and our many community partners. Unfortunately the project has been temporarily postponed due Covid 19 however we are hopeful to complete crosswalk as soon as it is safe to do so. UPDATE: We are hoping to have the sidewalk installed before June of 2021.

The Rainbow sidewalk will represent the diverse and supportive culture of Oxford County, while sending messages of support and inclusiveness and visibility to residents in Oxford County.

Thank you to the Community Futures Oxford, the BIA and Oxford County for your support!
