This map shows 256 LGBT/queer film festivals existing globally since 1977. A pin with a dot inside shows a still existing festival, while an empty pin stands for a terminated festival. The historical development of the LGBT/Q film festival circuit is represented by color-coding, each color indicating a specific time period. I follow the four historical phases proposed by Ragan Rhyne in her PhD thesis “Pink Dollars: Gay and Lesbian Film Festivals and the Economy of Visibility“ (2007). In the 1st phase (BLUE: 1977–1990) these festivals were established; the 2nd phase (GREEN: 1991–1996) was marked by building relationships between festivals and the commercial industry; in the 3rd phase (YELLOW: 1996–2001) the gay and lesbian film festival model proliferated globally, and in the 4th (RED: 2001–2006) major sponsorship links to television developed (Rhyne: 4-5). The current, final phase (VIOLET: 2007–2012) is largely characterized by network building.
