Pride at the Pictures
A year's worth of films
Throughout the year, Liverpool Pride, in collaboration with FACT, holds regular film nights - all with a LGBTQ+ emphasis.
Many of these films are not in circulation, or are cult classics!
Monday 23th July: All About My Mother
Divine Divas portrays eight Brazilian transvestite performers and drag artists of the 1960’s who revolutioniSed the sexual behaviour and challenged the conservatism of this time. One of the first stages to feature men dressed as women was the rival theatre, run by Americo Leal, grandfather of the director. They bravely challenged rigid morals at the height of a military dictatorship, and created a defining moment in the struggle for human rights and individual freedom in the Brazil of yesterday and today.
This event is FREE to attend and is presented by Brazilica and Output Gallery.
Thanks go to Moulay Drissi and Gabrielle de la Puente for their great kindness.

We start Pride week with a cinema classic: Pedro Almodóvar's Oscar winning All About My Mother.
A Greek saying states that only women who have washed their eyes with tears can see clearly, but when Manuela's son Esteban is killed in an road accident, she goes on a journey where nothing is clear.
Manuela sets out to find Esteban's father - but his life has changed too....
With the brilliant tag line, "Part of Every woman is a saint...a mother...an actress a sinner...and part of every man is a woman...." you can expect many twists and turns in this brilliant, brilliant film.
All our screenings are supported by Unison North West LGBT Group for which we are profoundly grateful
