Orlando Identities, Relationships, Opportunities is an interdisciplinary queer festival centered on relationships, gender identities and sexual orientations that intermixes film screenings, theatre and dance performances, workshops, meetings and seminars, on the occasion of the International day against homophobia, biphobia and transphobia.
Quoting Orlando by Virginia Woolf, from which the festival takes its name:
“Change was incessant, and change perhaps would never cease. High battlements of thought, habits that had seemed durable as stone, went down like shadows at the touch of another mind and left a naked sky and fresh stars twinkling in it.”
Giving visibility to works of artistic and cultural value is the first step to seeing those stars.
