Who’s On Top?

Who’s on Top? is a feature-length documentary which shines a spotlight on members of the LGBTQ community — including those with a range of mountaineering experience — who challenge stereotypes about gender and sexuality in the outdoor arena. Historically excluded and ostracized as not belonging to the natural domain, the climbers will tackle not only a mountain, but assumptions about who they are and how they belong to the world of outdoor adventure. This film will portray a journey like no other, a never-before-told story about what makes LGBTQ folks both distinct and connected, facing physical, mental and societal obstacles.

This film is presented as part of Out Central Oregon’s Winter PrideFest 2022.
