Reclaim Pride Umeå

Movie session with QRAB

Queer Moving History - part two.

From liberation to trans militancy - documents from queer struggles in Sweden. This film programme highlights queer struggles and the history of the Pride movement in Sweden, from 1979 until today. We’re invited to join in demonstrations, festivals, actions and escapades that have moved queer issues forward, outward and inward. Here are pink balloons let loose in the wind, raised fists and gay songs, lesbian struggle, queer feminism, trans militancy, the bravest man in Sweden heading a liberation march in Gothenburg and the story of when Sundsvall became Queersvall. Here are anti-marriage activists and pink and black rainbows. Here are the traces that lead to the present and inspiration for the future. The program is curated by Anna Linder (SAQMI) and Olov Kriström (QRAB) with support from the Holger and Thyra Lauritzen Foundation and the Swedish Arts Council. SAQMI - The Swedish Archive for Queer Moving Images - is Sweden’s first archive and platform for queer moving images. QRAB - The Archives and Library of the Queer Movement - collects, preserves and makes available all forms of documentation on queer conflicts and culture.
