The LGBT community in Tokyo is hard at work. Not even a month after the Rainbow Pride parade, the biennial Asian Queer Film Festival is set to grace the Cinemart Roppongi this weekend.

Started in 2007, AQFF screens queer films from Asia, hoping to spread awareness and understanding of sexual minorities. The festival’s staff are volunteers who feel passionate about the cause. This year’s festival takes place over two weekends and spans six days, May 24-26 and May 31-June 1.
