Solange, tô aberta! is a project from Brazil in the style of Baile Funk that blends queer, punk, drag queen and
post-porn with the sound and dance of Funk Carioca. It uses funk as a tool of political resistance. Distorting its initial form, it promotes an explosion of cathartic dance and politics. It speaks of those bodies that want openness and space to exist, questioning sexuality, gender, identity and stereotypes.

The Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDOR) is observed in late November in recognition of the 1998 murder of the activist Rita Hester, a transgender Afro American Woman, who worked in Educating the communities about Trans issues. “The Transgender Day of Remembrance seeks to highlight the losses we face due to anti-transgender bigotry and violence. I am no stranger to the need to fight for our rights, and the right to simply exist is first and foremost. With so many seeking to erase transgender people — sometimes in the most brutal ways possible — it is vitally important that those we lose are remembered, and that we continue to fight for justice.”
– TDOR founder Gwendolyn Ann Smith
It was important for us that our 1.ed of TransFormations be about celebrating all trans* lives. To honor all the work that has been done in the past by, all the transgender, transexuals, trans woman, trans men, two spirit, non binary andro agender etc who have been killed all over the world. We would like to thank them all and to let them know that we will not forget them that we are continuing the struggles and fights for more rights for being full parts of society because we are here and without them we would not have been able to hold this trans Film Festival.
This celebration is a way to let those among us who dont as yet have the possibility to express themselves know that we dont forget them as well and that we know the path may be long but they are not alone.
It’s our duty as those who are able to do it, to fight to celebrate ourselves to imagine what we want in order to get always more and if it’s not now it will be in 5, 10 oder 20 years but it will be.
And that’s why it’s so important to celebrate all the identites in the way they are and existed because each of us has to have the right to be as they want to without policing without limits and in trust.
