The event is in addition to LMC Vienna’s main fetish event which takes place in October.

DETAILS : klick here

As part of this weekend, there is again a great program for the Berlin SKINS and the numerous guests from home and abroad, which of the members of the BLF | Berlin Leder und Fetisch eV.

Berlin SKIN WEEKEND 2015

“Berlin Leder and Fetisch e.V.” was founded on April 16th 1998. Our goal was and still is to build a community for all gay men who are interested in the leather and fetish scene (rubber, uniform, biker, skin…). BLF is a registered non-profit association.

THE NAME
We deliberately put the words leather and fetish into the name. With its dynamic development in the past years the leather scene has created the possibility to live one’s own fetish as a gay man nearly everywhere. The leather and fetish scene has continued to grow enormously over the past years. Therefore, we are open for any masculine fetish.

THE BLF-Logo
It obviously reminds one of the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin. Instead of columns of “our” Brandenburg Gate can you see the letters of our association. The  B=Berlin, L=Leather, F=Fetish.

MEMBERS
The BLF has members from all of Germany, from Switzerland, France, Great Britain, Denmark, Poland and the Netherlands. Everyone Volunteers can activ involved by many activities and events. Our members are volunteers and represent almost all fetishes. Each one lives his own fetish but all come together in the club: bikers, skins, rubber guys, sneaker lovers, leather and boot guys, army and uniform enthusiasts form a tolerant (and really great) community.

Here can you find our MEMBERGALLERY

Would you like to take part? [Learn more]

THE PRÄVENTION
The BLF has joined the project “Safety 4 Free” in 2008. An action of ManCheck (www.mancheck-berlin.de) for HIV prevention in the community. The members of the Berlin leather and fetish e. V. undertake to connect all parties and events with the call to SAFER SEX and to make condoms available.

2012, the BLF in cooperation with the Order of perpetual indulgence (Berlin) and the local WOOF an educational flyer on “Crystal Meth” released!

SOCIAL ENGAGEMENT
BLF organises not only events and meetings for leather and fetish enthusiasts but is also engaged in social matters inside and outside the club. Our club also helps members with social problems, the integration of gay men in society, as well as help with any problems that may result from disease such as AIDS, hepatitis. BLF does its best to offer assistance and support in such occasions.

You can find pictures and more information here about our social commitment and activities. Our social representative offers consultation and assistance for any questions and problems whether it is personal or connected with authorities or social security etc. Privacy, of cousre, is ensured.

Opening Film

Grandma
Paul Weitz, USA 2015, 79’, English original with German subtitles

Grandma

Elle, a grumpy, aging poet, is in deep mourning for Vi, the love of her life, when her granddaughter, Sage, shows up in desperate need of money for an abortion. As every grandma would do, Elle puts Sage into her car and takes to the road to raise the money. Which also involves a confrontation with her daughter/Sage’s mother. GRANDMA is not only a touching movie about three generations of women, but also the hilarious Lily Tomlin’s big screen comeback.

 

 


Centrepiece 1
Stories of our Lives
Jim Chuchu, Kenya 2014, 60’, English and Swahili original with German subtitles

Metropolis, Thursday 22nd October, 6 pmStories Of Our Lives

The Kenyan artists collective NEST, formed to explore identities, pasts and futures, have been gathering stories that characterise the queer experience within Kenya’s homophobic culture. Five compelling episodes form the basis of this visually stunning movie that provides an insight into the daily lives of marginalized youths whose feelings range between hope and despondency, as they try to achieve self-determination in a climate of refused acceptance. A graceful film that blurs the lines between fiction and reality.

Followed by a video conference with representatives of the NEST Collective.

In cooperation with umdenken Heinrich-Böll-Stiftung Hamburg e.V.
Funded by the Landeszentrale für politische Bildung Hamburg

 


Centrepiece 2
A Escondidas | The Secret Friend
Mikel Rueda, Spain 2014, 96’, Spanish original with German subtitles

Passage 1, Thursday 22nd October, 8 pm

A Esconidas

Ibra from Morocco faces a lot of problems in Spain, as his legal status is still pending. One is blatant racism, which is part of his daily life. No wonder he is suspicious when native Rafa shows an interest in him. However, Rafa doesn’t give up and eventually the two become closer. Unfortunately, they’ve reckoned without the immigration office: Ibra decides to take off, leaving Rafa behind, devastated. Not only a coming-of-age romance, but also a relevant political tragedy about human rights in Europe.

In presence of the director Mikel Rueda.

 Closing Film

Les Nuits D'ete

Les Nuits d’été | Summer Nights
Mario Fanfani, France 2014, 100’, French original with English subtitles

Passage 1, Sunday, 25th October, 5.30 pm

“Summer Nights” is a song-cycle by Berlioz for tenor or mezzo-soprano. Michel, too, feels like he has two voices inside, but his other identity as Mylène can only to be lived out clandestinely in 1959 provincial France. In public, he’s an earnest lawyer, at home, a patriarch, who loves his wife Hélène. Can Hélène embrace the two voices inside of Michel/Mylène and accept his need to sometimes dress as a woman? A touching drama that gently portrays the atmosphere of a bygone era.

Winner of the Queer Lion 2014.

In the presence of director Mario Fanfani and actress Zazie de Paris.

 


 Post-Porn Special

B-Movie, Friday, 23rd October, 10.30 pm

To get in the mood, we’re beginning with

been too long at the FAIR, Charles Lum/Todd Verow, USA 2015, 6’, English original
TON POIDS SUR MA NUQUE/YOUR WEIGHT ON THE NAPE OF MY NECK, Frédéric Labonde, France 2015, 10’, English original

Followed by

Nova Dubai
Gustavo Vinagre, Brazil 2014, 53’, Portuguese original with English subtitles

Nova Dubai

A luxury real estate development, “New Dubai”, is threatening the living space of a group of friends. Their reaction? Wild sex on the construction sites, taking gay sex out of virtual and private spaces and placing it directly in the public domain. An outstanding new voice in young Brazilian cinema, Gustavo Vinagre has created, with his own circle of friends, a poetic, sexually-explicit and political essay about public and private places – and how much space we need or want to live in.

In the presence of director Gustavo Vinagre.


Focus: The Art Of Fighting

This year we address the US “Second Wave Feminism” of the 60s/70s, looking especially at lesbian artists. How do US filmmakers position themselves within artistic interventions and how are queer-feminist issues currently debated?

She’s Beautful when She’s Angry
Mary Dore, USA 2014, 92’, English original
Passage 1, Thursday 22nd October, 5.30 pm

“The bitter lesson is that no victories are permanent” states one of the protagonists in Mary Dore’s documentary. The heroines of that time, among them Rita Mae Brown and the “Our Bodies, Ourselves” collective, tell of their influential fight. Turf battles between straight and lesbian women are highlighted, as well as the 
exclusion of the black community and the hierarchies between intellectuals and women who felt expelled from this group. A long overdue film that reminds us not to forget.

Feelings Are Facts: The Life of Yvonne Rainer
Jack Walsh, USA 2015, 83’, English original
Passage 2, Friday 23rd October, 6 pm

Yvonne Rainer, revolutionary modern dancer and winner of the 1997 Teddy Award, is the subject of this documentary. The eighty-year-old has spent a lifetime working on the central questions of feminist theory through her art. In the 60s she renewed dance through prosaic, everyday movements. Then she turned to film, thematising aging, breastcancer and her coming out in the late 90s.

The Royal Road
Jenni Olson, USA 2015, 65’, English original
B-Movie, Saturday, 24th October, 6 pm

A film is shot in static sequences with California city and landscape scenery that fails to redeem film’s greatest promise – the depiction of people – thus fulfilling a central requirement of feminist film: the destruction of the voyeuristic gaze.

 


Focus: Queering TV

Banana

So many TV stations are now developing scripts with complex and interesting queer characters that it’s hard to catch up. But if everybody’s at home streaming, how’s that going to affect queer film festivals? Although queer lives are becoming accessible to a broader audience, it’s the experience that counts. As B. Ruby Rich mentioned during her lecture at last year’s LSF, watching queer stories together and talking about them in real time, is what builds community spirit. That’s the “magic of queer film festivals”. So let’s watch TV TOGETHER – we’ve selected two outstanding productions and – entry is FREE!

Banana
Episode 1 „Dean“ 
Director: Lewis Arnold, Screenplay: Russell T Davies, 23’
Episode 6 „Amy“ 
Director: Al Mackay, Screenplay: Charlie Covell, 23’
Episode 4 „Helen“ 
Director: Lewis Arnold, Screenplay: Charlie Covell, 23’
UK 2015, 70’, English original
B-Movie, Friday 23rd October, 8.15 pm

The maker of “Queer as Folk”, Russell T Davies, aired his newest series-threesome “Cucumber/Banana/Tofu” (named after a scale for describing erectile hardness… Aha…? Duh!) on the UK’s Channel 4 in January. We’re showing three choice episodes from “Banana”, each one a completed story focussing on the varied spectrum of contemporary queer experience. Dean, Amy and Helen all have their problems in life, but it refreshingly, sexuality is not one of them!

TORKA ALDRIG TÅRAR UTAN HANDSKAR | Don’t ever wipe Tears without Gloves

Torka

Simon Kaijser/Jonas Gardell (Screenplay), Sweden 2012, 174’, Swedish original with English subtitles
Passage 1, Saturday 24th October, 2 pm

The Eighties: student Rasmus moves from a rural area in Sweden to Stockholm. Celebrating his new freedom, he explores the gay life of the city. When he falls in love with Benjamin everything seems to be perfect. But then Rasmus is diagnosed with AIDS. The mini series shows how the scars of the AIDS era still influence today’s gay communities, and is also a heartbreaking hymn to youth and freedom.

2015 QueerFilm Festival Bremen

October 13, 2015toOctober 18, 2015

QueerFilm Festival BremenFor six days, the festival presents the Bremen Municipal Cinema  City46 a diverse mix of films, documentaries and short films, which selects the volunteer team of the current annual production. All films are shown as premieres Bremer; if possible in the original version. The supporting program of the festival also includes discussions with directors and activists. Bremen, Germany.

2015 QueerFilm Festival Bremen

2015 QueerFilm Festival Bremen

Starting from the idea of accompanying the lesbian-gay “Herbsterwachen” to show a couple of movies, created in 1994, the Queer Film Festival Bremen. Since then, the festival takes place annually in October and as the interested public presented the local LGBTI*! Community films with queer orientation. Since its inception, the festival has become a fixture of the regional cultural landscape and has also become nationally networked: as a member of Queer Scope, an independent network of gay-lesbian festivals in Germany.

For six days, the festival presents the Bremen Municipal Cinema  City46 a diverse mix of films, documentaries and short films, which selects the volunteer team from the latest annual productions. All films are shown as premieres Bremer; if possible in the original version. The supporting program of the festival also includes discussions with directors and activists.

A special award is the Audience Award at the festival, which is awarded each year for a full-length film.

We see it as an important cultural and political order to give cinematic representations of alternative lifestyles a forum – in particular lifestyles in gay-lesbian-transgender context. The program of the queer film festival since its beginnings Bremen therefore different concept and content of the other, commercial cinemas. The festival is especially films an opportunity that found in Germany still no Rental – perhaps because they are too new; or because they are not eligible for commercial exploitation in question. This also explains the high density of premieres that characterizes the festival. In the film program as well as in the accompanying social events – round tables, exhibitions, discussions – the festival tries to take up current social debates and international developments: We want not only to inform, but to contribute to current discussions also.

The festival program is governed by a volunteer  program committee together. Especially important for us is the balance between gay, lesbian and transgender contributions; between feature films and documentaries; between German and international productions. The program is supplemented by (at least) a short film evening, thematic priority programs and classics of queer film history.

Lübeck Pride 2015

August 21, 2015toAugust 22, 2015

CSD Lubeck – The Lübeck CSD Association is an association that fights for the rights of queer population. Lubeck, Germany.

Lübeck Pride 2015

Lübeck Pride 2015

 

Founded in 2001, and celebrated as a great success, is far from old hat. The registered partnership no longer reflects 14 years after its launch already the living reality in society again. Although there was in the meantime further progress in terms of “equality of lesbians and gays” – but only piecemeal. The ultra-Catholic Ireland makes it from the Germans. There, the majority of society has called for the opening of marriage for same-sex couples in the spring. In Germany continues to determine the gut feeling of the Chancellor about the family happiness of gays and lesbians, although there are more supporters of the “marriage for all” are also in the Union.

Besides the legal equality and the re-increasing social discrimination of gays and lesbians plays an important role in the Christopher Street Day in Lübeck. So be on August 22, 2015 thousands under the motto “Love knows no different – diversity makes school” to demonstrate and make clear that love knows no gender, race, age, color, handicap, religion or political opinion. Participants come so contrary to the backward-looking debate of the past months and those who want to homophobic, sexist and populist slogans exclude people who do not comply with the heterosexual norm.

The CSD, the biggest political event of Lübeck, is preceded by a colorful supporting program. Thus, guests from near and far, for example, may at a photo exhibition, a community reception, a lecture and film night, a gay and lesbian city tour and, delighted a church service. The grand finale will start on Friday 21 August with a warmup at the street fair. The demonstration on Saturday, August 22 through the historic old town, followed by the street festival on the Upper Trave and the final party in the port sheds. 6

We wish you all a great week and a successful CSD Pride weekend in Lübeck.


Liebe Freundinnen und Freunde des CSD in Lübeck,

was 2001 noch als großer Wurf gefeiert wurde, ist längst ein alter Hut. Die eingetragene Lebenspartnerschaft spiegelt 14 Jahre nach ihrer Einführung schon längst nicht mehr die gelebte Realität in der Gesellschaft wieder. Zwar gab es in der Zwischenzeit weitere Fortschritte in Sachen „Gleichstellung von Lesben und Schwulen“ – jedoch nur häppchenweise. Das erzkatholische Irland macht es den Deutschen vor. Dort hat sich im Frühjahr die Mehrheit der Gesellschaft für die Öffnung der Ehe für gleichgeschlechtliche Paare ausgesprochen. In Deutschland bestimmt weiterhin das Bauchgefühl der Kanzlerin über das Familienglück von Lesben und Schwulen, obwohl es auch in der Union immer mehr Befürworter der „Ehe für alle“ gibt.

Neben der rechtlichen Gleichstellung spielt auch die wieder stärker werdende gesellschaftliche Diskriminierung von Lesben und Schwulen eine wichtige Rolle beim Christopher Street Day in Lübeck. So werden am 22. August 2015 Tausende unter dem Motto „LIEBE KENNT KEIN ANDERS – VIELFALT MACHT SCHULE“ demonstrieren und deutlich machen, dass Liebe weder Geschlecht, Herkunft, Alter, Hautfarbe, Handicap,Religion oder politische Anschauung kennt. Die Teilnehmer treten damit der rückwärtsgewandten Diskussion der letzten Monate und jenen entgegen, die mit homophoben, sexistischen und rechtspopulistischen Parolen Menschen ausgrenzen wollen, die nicht der heterosexuellen Norm entsprechen.

Dem CSD, der größten politischen Veranstaltung Lübecks, geht ein buntes Rahmenprogramm voraus. So dürfen sich die Gäste aus Nah und Fern z.B. auf eine Fotoausstellung, einen Community-Empfang, einen Vortrags- und Filmabend, eine schwul-lesbische Stadtführung und, einen Gottesdienst freuen. Das große Finale beginnt am Freitag, 21. August mit einem WarmUp auf dem Straßenfest. Die Demonstration am Samstag, 22 August führt durch die historische Altstadt, gefolgt vom Straßenfest an der Obertrave und der Abschlussparty im Hafenschuppen 6.

Wir wünschen allen eine tolle CSD-Woche und ein erfolgreiches Pride-Wochenende in Lübeck.

Schwules Strassenfest 2015

August 15, 2015

Schwules Strassenfest – This year, the Sub celebrates its 29 years of existence, the Hans-Sachs-street festival itself is 25. For 29 years, the gay cultural communication and the first point of contact for Munich and visitors to the city. Munich, Germany.

Schwules Strassenfest 2015

Schwules Strassenfest 2015

Since then, the Hans Sachs street festival has become an integral part of the lesbian and gay summer and traditionally takes place on Saturday after Assumption place. The street festival was annually larger inlet and burst after a few years at the seams. For this reason, since 2000 the Ickstattstraße belongs to the Party Zone. With this regulation, the Sub received a special permit from the city, because according to regulations to street festivals should always concentrate on one street. The breather that brought the area increase, however, was short-lived. Since 2002, we have to fence at the urging of the police, the street festival to keep the onslaught of visitors is limited. Only then can we ensure the safety of all visitors.Overall, every year to celebrate up to 10,000 people simultaneously.


“Servus, grüzi, holadio” lautet in diesem Jahr das Motto unserer Geburtstagsparty am Samstag, den 15. August. Ab 13 Uhr laden wir Euch wieder in die Hans-Sachs- und Ickstattstraße. Im Reigen der Länder, denen wir unser Fest alljährlich widmen, sind 2015 Österreich und die Schweiz an der Reihe. Außerdem feiert das Hans-Sachs-Straßenfest 25. Jubiläum.

Wir raten deshalb allen ab, mit Fahrrädern, Kinderwägen oder Hunden zu kommen. Seiner Beliebtheit wegen ist das Hans-Sachs-Straßenfest heute nach dem CSD sicherlich die größte Veranstaltung der Münchner Community, die weit über Münchens Stadttore hinaus bekannt ist. In jedem Fall ist es aber Münchens bekanntestes lesbisch-schwules Straßenfest.

In diesem Jahr feiert das Sub sein 29-jähriges Bestehen, das Hans-Sachs-Straßenfest selbst wird 25. Seit 29 Jahren ist das Schwule Kommunikations- und Kulturzentrum die erste Anlaufstelle für Münchner und Gäste der Stadt.

Seitdem hat sich das Hans-Sachs-Straßenfest als fester Bestandteil des lesbisch-schwulen Sommers etabliert und findet traditionell am Samstag nach Maria Himmelfahrt statt.

Das Straßenfest hatte jedes Jahr größeren Zulauf und platzte schon nach wenigen Jahren aus allen Nähten. Aus diesem Grund gehört seit dem Jahr 2000 auch die Ickstattstraße zur Partyzone. Mit dieser Regelung hat das Sub eine Sondergenehmigung der Stadt erhalten, denn laut Vorschrift dürfen sich Straßenfeste immer nur auf eine Straße konzentrieren.

Die Verschnaufpause, die der Flächenzuwachs brachte, war jedoch nur von kurzer Dauer. Seit 2002 müssen wir auf Drängen der Ordnungsbehörden das Straßenfest einzäunen, um den Ansturm der Besucher in Grenzen zu halten. Nur so können wir die Sicherheit aller Besucher gewährleisten. Insgesamt können jedes Jahr bis zu 10.000 Menschen gleichzeitig feiern.
