Queer Fever shows LGBT life from a wide variety of suspenseful situations, from Europe to Canada and from China to Chechnya. Issues dealing with gender are discussed, chasms between family members come up, politically motivated threats turn lethal, and the program tells intimately about life in a local neighborhood of Berlin. Love and passion serve as bookends for the six films. They call for tolerance across the board.
