TOP 5 | Films showing the fight against homophobia

Last Sunday (17), we celebrated the International Day Against Homophobia. On May 17, 1990, it was the date on which homosexuality was no longer considered a disease by the World Health Organization. This was the first of many victories that the LGBTQIA + community has won.

Despite this, we are often impacted by news of verbal, physical, sexual and other motivations caused by homophobia. A survey released in 2019 by the Gay Group of Bahia shows that, on average, an LGBT dies every 23 hours. In addition, the survey points out that there were 141 deaths from January to May 15, 2019, with 126 homicides and 15 suicides. It is the duty of the press to discuss issues that are sensitive and to give voice to a minority - which is a majority. With that in mind, we have separated five productions to make you reflect on homophobia. It is necessary to overcome prejudice and talk about it is fundamental to the awareness process.

Check out 5 films that talk about this fight:

1. The Danish Girl 

The film covers the story of Lili Elbe (Eddie Redmayne), who was born Einar Mogens Wegener and was the first person to undergo gender change surgery. Focus on the Danish painter's loving relationship with Gerda (Alicia Vikander) and her discovery as a woman. But who is the Danish girl? This is a question that haunts me, because we have Eddie's characters and Alicia's character and both play this role with mastery. If on the one hand we have the husband who rediscovers himself, on the other hand we have the wife who supports him in this difficult journey despite a great loss and immense loneliness, on the other hand we have both characters, Lili and Gerda, who are worthy of the title of this film, The Danish Girl (s).
