In addition, we're showing three short films; 'Crystal Lake' (Jennifer Reeder, 2015, 19 min.) on the unity of strong girls and vulnerability, 'Imago' (Liz Cardenas Franke, 2016, 7 min.) about a trans woman's farewell to her father based on a true story, and 'The Curse' (Danny Tayara, 2017, 3 min.) about a bloody accident. The evening ends with music from Kapow Collective.

Sophie Labelle Talk

Sophie Labelle is a Canadian comedian artist who, through her comic strip 'Assigned Male Comics', is active in the fight for trans rights.

The comic centres around the young Stephie, who Labelle describes as a sarcastic young feminist who doesn't take shit from anyone. Sophie Labelle is a rare voice talking about body empowerment and body positivity that addresses trans issues in a way that is not based on medical discourse. Meet Sophie Labelle on Saturday 28/10 at 3 pm when she will come and talk about her activism and comic strip.

Panel debate: Internalised phobias

Navigating our society as an LGBTQ person can be challenging. As a reaction to the hostility, violence and oppression often met, we create our own communities where safety, understanding and respect are expected and needed. In spite of this, our communities are challenged when internalised phobias lead to the same discrimination we're trying to escape. Inspired by the documentary 'Dream Boat', our panel will discuss how internalised phobias are affecting the LGBTQ community from within.

Panel debate: A Womb of Their Own

In continuation of the documentary 'A Womb of Their Own', this panel debate questions the perception of pregnancy and parenting as something mostly or exclusively seen as feminine. Our panelists will talk about how to break expectations of gender, body and family formation in a gender-binary society.
