“Queer Son,” and 7 films that can finally be seen in time for the big pride weekend

As the big city prides hit this weekend, not everyone will be able to attend. So thank goodness for Frameline, the San Francisco-based queer media arts foundation, and organizer of the world’s largest LGBTQ film festival.

Now we’ve rounded up a list of political and coming out films just in time for the inspiration that is pride season…
