The LGBTI Centre is launching a new cycle of activities on 6 November which will continue up to January. The first activity in the cycle will be on 8 November at 6 pm with the presentation of the exhibition and a screening of the documentary “Los muchos triángulos rosas”, a work by Luca Gaetano Pira, in collaboration with the Archivos de la memoria trans de Argentina.  

The presentation will include an online talk from Marzia Echenique, a survivor and healed, who is a contributor to the Archivo de la Memoria Travesti y Trans de la provincia de Santa Fe, in Argentina, as well as participation from Christian Obregón, a journalist, poet and flamenco dancer, and Luca Gaetano Pira, an activist, photographer and nature lover.  

What happened to LGBTQIA+ people during the military dictatorships in Argentina, Chile, Uruguay and the Spanish State? 

“Los muchos triángulos rosas” is a project resulting from an overwhelming need to put faces to the individuals who have fought all their lives for the right to be who they are freely. No extractivism or sensationalism.

Centuries of oppression and censure have encouraged the creation of a queer and activist community that has responded to institutional violence during military dictatorships as well as attacks from civil society. The LGBTQIA+ community is what it is, today, thanks to that community.

This is a photographic and documentary project devised by the photographer Luca Gaetano, who began research years ago on the persecution of the LGBTQIA+ community during military dictatorships.   

Presentation ceremony on 8 November at 6 pm at the Barcelona LGBTI Centre’s functions hall
