On the 12th of June we celebrated The Gender Diversity Day for the first time. But this story is not ended and we keep on telling about it.
On the 15th of July there was a meeting organized by the cinema-club of Krasnodar LGBT social movement «Revers» and the Service project for transgender people «T*Revers». At the event was shown short film «Two Spirit People» about the gender variety of North American Indians and the influence of traditions on acceptance or rejection of transgender people or homosexual people in modern Indian communities. The film was in English with Russian subtitles. And many thanks for the translation to our colleagues from Nizhny Novgorod.
After the film there was a discussion about different traditions of Indian nationalities, their influence on modern cultures and inequality in the division of labor. Also in the process of the talk every member could share their personal impression of the film, talk about feelings that were caused by what was happening on the screen. Emotions and thoughts were completely different: from the sorrow for traditions that were almost erased to some kind of relief because something like that actually existed even long before the colonization by cultures more advanced in other, non-spiritual areas.
