QCI serves as a hub for an innovative and rigorous approach to the research, production, study and distribution of cinema that speaks directly to the many aspects of the Lesbian/Gay/Transgender/Queer (LGBTQ) experience. QCI organizes its own events as well as collaborating on projects with partners and partner organizations within and beyond SF State.
