Queer As German Folk

Nov 20 – Dec 23
Opening: Friday, November 20, 7pm

Queer as German Folk tells the stories of LGBTQI* (Lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans-, queer and intersex) people fighting for visibility, recognition and equality over the past 50 years in both parts of Germany. It shows West-German gay movements as well as lesbian church groups in the GDR, the community of people of colour, feminist activists, trans* and intersex people, and the queer history in the GDR. More than 100 exhibits – photographs, posters, leaflets, underground fanzines, artworks and videos – convey the sound of fierce controversies, resistant actions, idiosyncratic performances and exuberant parties of the last 50 years of queer life in Germany.

Special guest: Jimmy Sham, Member of Rainbow Action
