Berlin stinks

BERLINALE: There is really something lurking behind the films at the Berlinale this year.

Stories from the lesbian underground scene

Leilah Weinraub: Shakedown

: Leilah Weinraub's Shakedown is a fascinating glimpse into the world of African-American lesbian clubs and strip shows.

To turn the tolerance sheath after the wind

: The eagerness to accuse immigrants and Muslims of being intolerant of queers, appears quite strange when you look at what kind of attitudes still exist among so-called Norwegian ethnic.

"You're not gay" 

: It is so absurd to sit in a courtroom where someone is set to "prove" their homosexual orientation – and in very many cases are not believed.

A heteronormative circle

: When Norway makes the same demands on gay and heterosexual refugees, we continue discriminatory practices.

Plowing new ground in all directions

: The Oslo / Fusion film festival has succeeded in presenting a program with an enormous range, where the lesbian horror comedy Women Who Kill is one of the highlights.

A life at odds with the law

: Violence against gays and transgender people has increased sharply in Uganda in recent years, especially after a controversial bill was introduced. 

Pioneering life

: Kiki throws the viewer straight into the lives of black, queer young people in New York, who for various reasons have been placed outside the American dream.

The gender struggle is not over

: Without a treatment offer that allows everyone to feel good in their own body, we will not reach our goal. It is high time to start thinking differently about gender, and stop closing your eyes to the gender diversity that actually exists.
