Activism and Media

Activisme & Médias

At a time when the LGBTQ+ community wants to be more inclusive of the various identities, the RLQ/QLN - Quebec Lesbian Network wishes to put forward the realities of sexually diverse women. Whether feminist, lesbian, queer, pansexual, trans, etc. these women go well beyond the labels in their ideologies, identifications and daily occupations. This short experimental film highlights the complexity of this reflection, while giving visibility to sexually diverse women.
