Documentary Screening: Pride is Protest
Time & Location
About the Event
Marieke Dermul and Filip Tielens travelled to New York to attend the biggest Pride ever, 50 years after the Stonewall uprising. In their documentary 'Pride is Protest!' they ask the question: what are LGBTQ people fighting for today? In New York, where the global rainbow movement started, they experienced the activist roots of Pride. As many interviewees responded: Pride should not only be a parade, but also a protest - like in the early days. In their documentary, gays, queers and people of colour testify about discrimination - even within the LGBTQ community - but also show their enormous strength and creative protest. The riot goes on!
