»Perverse« derives from Latin and means, like »queer« which originally comes from Old High German: »twisted«, »turned about«, »odd«. And those whose are considered »odd« are still endangered.
The creation of maximum conspicuousness for lifestyles that don’t conform to the mainstream was once the goal of the initial pride protests, which began in 1969 on Christopher Street in New York. And that’s precisely the goal of LGBTTIQ* festival PUGS IN LOVE: making perverse realities of life visible!
The festival presents artistic works about sex out of protest and desire as a social practice, about the in/visibilities of stigmatised bodies and surmounting queer colonialism:
PUGS IN LOVE – QUEER WEEK
PERFORMANCE – DISKURS – PARTY
