The documentary film depicting the beginning of the political organization of the Brazilian LGBT movement


Called “When We Dare To Exist – History of the Brazilian Gay Movement +”, the feature film that brings the vision of activists from the 70s and 80s, about the historical paths of this movement, will be shown on Thursday (04/28), at 6 pm, to guests at Teatro Alcione Araújo – Biblioteca Parque, in downtown Rio de Janeiro. After the screening, there will be a round of talks with the film’s directors and activists at the time. Recorded between 2017 and 2019, with activists who worked in the states of Rio Grande do Sul, Rio de Janeiro, Pernambuco, Bahia, São Paulo, Sergipe and Ceará, in the 1970s and 1980s, the team challenged the Brazilian territorial extension to find some of the people who founded the Brazilian gay movement. Between coming and going along the roads of this vast country, some memories have been rediscovered in defense of gay democracy and citizenship.
