Fed up with being pushed around, a group of gay and trans teens of color form a gang and fight back on the brutal streets of Washington D.C. They call their gang ‘Check it’ and this group of one-time victims of bullying, rape and abuse have turned the tables on anyone trying to hurt them. The group formed to provide its members safety in numbers and let people know that if they jump a queer kid in D.C., they may get beaten into a coma.
This raw and intimate portrait follows three childhood friends as they struggle to survive and claw their way out of gang life through an unlikely avenue: fashion. Co-directors Toby Oppenheimer and Dana Flor create a moving story of empowerment and a provocative exploration of class, marginalization and gang violence in the United States.
Yeniden Doğuş, Rebirth
Rebirth is a dance ritual. With every move, we are born again. With every little step, we cut the umbilical cord. With every turn, we create a new shell for ourselves.
Rebirth reflects the transformation of a performer with every beat on stage. She/he tears apart the veils the society has stitched on her/himself during the ritual. She/he gives birth to her/his new identity over and over again.
Directors: Gökçe Oraloğlu & Zehra Gökcimen
Cast: Ahsen Gönülce

Queer Legacies is a one-day conference exploring the impact on the museum and galleries sector of programming to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the partial decriminalisation of homosexuality in the UK in 2017. Have LGBTQ collaborations and events in the museum and gallery sector during 2017 created a permanent legacy? Have they helped to challenge and change the ways in which museums and galleries look at and share their collections, how they operate and how they collaborate with diverse communities? The conference explores the challenges and successes of projects over the past year, from the point of view of museums, galleries and the communities with which they have collaborated, and the legacy that is transforming the ways in which the sector works.
Amsterdam Museum: Community acknowledgement and transforming museum
practice; from outreach to ‘inreach’.
Illustrated by the Amsterdam Museum projects Transmission and Trans* Objects (video art project of TranScreen edition 2017), together with Amsterdam Museum we will give a presentation. Our main focus will be on the need for community acknowledgement and for museum accessibility, in order for museums to play a constructive role in empowering and connecting people. We will talk about representation and identity in the Amsterdam Museum but mainly take our audiences with us on a journey of transforming museum practice. Our presentation aims to be an inspirational talk about making the museum more relevant and accessible based on working with communities, and, in the context of acknowledgement and reciprocity, about the added value of a museum can bring to LGBTQI+ communities.
This event is organised by Royal Pavilion & Museums, Brighton & Hove. Each year the Royal Pavilion & Museums, Brighton & Hove, organises a national conference for the museums sector with support from the Arts Council of England.
