Closing the cycle ‘La ploma als carrers’

Today, the LGBTI Centre of Barcelona closes the programme cycle ‘La ploma als carrers!’ with which we wanted to open the Centre’s doors wide and fill the streets with feathers and protest.  

Since the beginning of May, nearly 700 people have participated in the proposed activities, which include the exhibition of ‘Cora’ by Argentine photographer Gabo Caruso, roundtable discussions, documentary projections, and the tour of puti barcelona trans* by Tirititranstranstrans… 

Throughout these months, we have paid particular attention to diverse and creative childhoods through the storytelling of Liu, with Isa Sina and Gigi la Fox, and with the roundtable discussion about LGBTQIA+ childhoods.  On the Centre’s walls, trans* childhoods have also been present with the photographic exhibition ‘Cora’ by Gabo Caruso.  

We have also created alliances between museums and districts, with a technical day organised in collaboration with the Association of Museum Professionals of Catalonia. The event adopted a dynamic format with the activity ‘Pass the Baton’, where experiences were shared, synergies were established, and bridges were built between museums, entities, collectives, cultural sector professionals, and individuals in charge of programming in museums, civic centres, and other facilities. A very enriching day that was part of the Pride in Museums programme. 

Not forgetting that on 20 May, over a thousand people celebrated the Centre Party, a fun and festive event that was also a protest to raise the visibility of LGBTI rights and sexual, affective, and gender diversity.  

This has been made possible thanks to those who participated as speakers or interpreters and moderated or energised the proposed activities. It was also made possible by the team of individuals working at the LGBTI Centre. And we must not forget all of you who have come to enjoy, share, and participate.  

We would also like to thank Tropidelia for their creativity and imagination in creating the graphic image of the cycle “La ploma als carrers!” and the Centre Party.
