„Aus dem Rahmen“ aims to create visibility and exchange for elderly queer people.
The idea behind the project “out of frame - queer aging” is to find out how queer identity and community can enrich the perception of aging processes. We all grow old - the question is how.
We don’t want to fit into existing - mostly heteronormative - structures. By applying a queer way of thinking we question socially established norms. People of higher age who wanted to live a non-heteronormative life, needed to break with gridlocked patterns. For this reason we focus on queer life stories and make elderly people the protagonists of our project.
Our aim is to enhance the visibility of queers of the generation 60+ and create a space for intergenerational exchange. We use film to document life stories and encounters. At the same time we establish a base for new connections by creating an event series where queer people from all generations can meet and celebrate. Collaborations with initiatives from Austria and abroad bring new perspectives and broaden the discourse.
