Welcome to QDoc!

QDoc is the only festival in the U.S. devoted exclusively to Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender (LGBT) documentaries. Documentaries offer a unique vehicle to creatively engage core issues of queer identity – politics, history, culture, diversity, sexuality, family, aging, and coming-out issues. Documentary as a form of expression is as vital and energetic as it has ever been, and QDoc brings the highest caliber of films – and their makers – to share with Portland audiences.

“We firmly believe that our stories need to be told, our youth deserve to know the richness of our culture and history, our seniors deserve to be praised for their work and struggles on our behalf, and people need to be informed of the struggle for equality around the world” – Les Lewis and Rick Watkins, QDoc supporters
