Love is the only true act of resistance : films from QTPOC

Love is the only true act of Resistance: films from QTPOC
( Queer, Trans*, People of color)

"In a society that profits from your self-doubt, liking yourself is a rebellious act. " - unknown

Through meditations on queer intimacy, racialized identity and politics these filmmakers explore the different ways love manifests itself. By focusing on the stories of Queer people of color we normalize our existence and provide a space that moves our stories from the margins to the mainstream. In a world that is trying it’s best to erase and silence our voices “it is better to speak remembering we were never meant to survive.” 

After the screening we will have a short conversation and speak with some of the directors. 

This screening is free to attend, but donations are accepted.

The event is located in Kedlen at Godsbanen just off the main entrance.
