EU declared 'LGBT freedom zone' in response to Poland's 'LGBT-free zones'

So, the EU might not be the most helpful at times, especially regarding the handling of the needs of LBTQIA+ people during the COVID-19 pandemic but on March 11th The European Parliament has declared that the whole of the European Union is an "LGBTIQ Freedom Zone" therefore finally responding to the regressive "LGBT free zones" policy adopted by Poland almost two years ago. A small step in the journey towards providing equality and access to fundamental rights for ALL the citizens of the EU.
👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽

MEP's overwhelmingly support a resolution that aims for all people in the EU to live "without fear".

CEJJAD AL-GASSANI [performer + student] I am a trans performer from Germany and one of the newest members of Q***rdos. My interest lies at the intersection of Performing Arts, Gender Studies and Interior Design.
As a young teen I was taking part in a theater house in my hometown and since 2019 I have been taking my
first steps as performer working here in Berlin with Academy of Autodidakten in Ballhaus Naunynstrasse and participated as
Assistant director with Q***rdos in the development of Q***rdo's Violence and Q***rdo's Mini. #q***rdosberlin #q***rartist #translivesmatter #performer #cejjadalgassani @ The Future

Born in communist Romania in 1988,
I studied theatre direction at the National University of Theatre and Film in Bucharest and furthered my studies at the University of the Arts in Targu Mures.
At the same time, I created as
sound designer and composer over 10
Performances in various theatres
Romania. At present I am using the experience inTheatre direction and sound design to further other artistic horizons in the area of q***r performance and artistic installations.
In Berlin I have worked in collaboration with Q***rdos for several performances. I also compose
music for AR/VR experiences created
and developed by the Augmented Space Agency.
Lately I have participated in several electronic music festivals, and I played several dj sets in clubs in Bucharest.
I am looking for the organicity in music and sound in relation to people and / or performers, actors.
Moreover, I started working with sound from natural environments from field recording to biofeedback. 📸 Cip Facaeru #romanianartist #composer #andreiraicu #biofeedback @ Kraftwerk Berlin

RONI LUGASSI [photographer + magic creature]

I was born in Israel, grew up in Tel Aviv. Ive been photographing since i was 12. Always loved to capture the little magical moments of life.
Before I moved to Berlin I volunteered in a youth club that was based on spreading free love, art and music, and was a photographer at 'Bamahane’: the magazine of the army.
The reason I moved to Germany was to experience the freedom Berlin has to offer. I was fascinated by the range of s*xual and gender identities and their different and beautiful expressions.

I learned that the world isn't always a happy place, but with my work I hope to capture and spread the light you can find in some places and people; my vision is to encourage others to express themselves and challenge what's considered "normal" in society 📸 @linardskulless #q***rdosberlin #q***rphotographer #ensemble #magic #ronilugassi

MAT SERGENT/ALICE DANGER
[writer, performer + personal service provider]

I'm a multidisciplinary shapeshifter from France; I've been writing since I was a kid, usually about morbid and/or disturbing topics. Since moving to Berlin 3 years ago, I turned into a w***e and last year I founded the event W***e Moans. We offer workshops, film screenings and partying centering s*x workers. I like to get dirty and dip my hands into everything, from erotic poetry to event organizing. I perform to interrogate the role of s*xuality, desire, identity and performativity. I’m currently writing a book that’s also an investigation into what masochism could mean from a politically and personally alienated perspective. It blends theory, sci-fi, playwriting and personal narrative. I’ve been a darkroom demon, a waitress, an opera singer, an es**rt, a lawful q***r… to be continued. 📸 @ronilugassi

HP Loveshaft [drag performer+passionate astrophysicist ]

I was born in Moscow & moved a few times before my family settled in Los Angeles. Besides one role as an evil king in a Purim school play, I became interested in performing after attending Rocky Horror at 15, where I put together my first drag-style lip-sync a few years later. Over the next few years,I began performing as HP Loveshaft in 2012 & produced a monthly drag king cabaret.Later on I started pursuing a degree in astrophysics. After successfully applying to UCI, I took advantage of their study abroad program to travel to Scotland in 2018, at which point I was able to self-produce my first tour. Performing in Paris, Berlin, Amsterdam & Brussels gave me the confidence to pursue drag as a full-time career & I relocated to Berlin later the same year. Since then, I've been privileged to work with internationally renowned drag queens like Taylor Mac, as well as perform in bars, theaters & festivals in over 20 cities in 8 countries. 📸 @ronilugassi #dragking #q***rdosberlin #octopus #fabperformer #hploveshaft @ Milky Way Galaxy

TOM SCHWARTZ [musician + tech wizard]

(ᴀʟsᴏ ᴋɴᴏᴡɴ ᴀs sɪɴɪsᴛᴇʀ sᴠᴇᴛᴀ ᴀɴᴅ ᴄᴏɴᴛʀᴏʟ ᴅᴇʟᴇᴛᴇ)

I was born in the unholy land of Israel, grew up in Tel Aviv, where I was active in the underground Punk and electronic scene, organizing events and making a lot of noise.
Through the years I’ve been performing on different platforms from sterile art galleries to dirty dance floors. As an electronic musician, I am interested in live sound installations and improvisation. Combining elements of sound design, meditation practice, electro-acoustic composition, noise, and techno waves. I’ve been producing soundtracks, compositions for theatre, spoken word weirdness and dancefloor tunes. Located in Berlin for the past six years, I continue to research and develop my musical language. 📸 @ronilugassi #q***rberlin #q***rdosberlin #technician #sinistersveta

P***Y RANZ [performer+filmmaker+sound designer]

Hi I am P***y Ranz, I am a very q***r and trans performer originally hailing from the so called United States. I started to become serious about artistic endeavors almost five years ago when I switched my studies from physical therapy to filmmaking, specifically Writing for Film, Television, and Emerging Media which I have a BFA in. I was determined to learn everything I possibly could about film, and worked on over 20 different films during my time at university. In doing so, I discovered my passions in several other disciplines including stand-up comedy, experimental noise music, and performance art. I was the president of my town’s comedy club Ithaca Comedy Club, I was a member of the town’s experimental theatre troupe Macabre Theatre Ensemble, and I was a regular DJ on my town’s local radio station 92 WICB. I entered all of these spaces with the idea to entertain, to be loud, to be q***r, and to become unabashedly myself. I gathered all these experiences, and in October 2019 moved to Berlin. Being in Berlin has given me the space to grow as an artist, to collaborate with others in ways I never thought possible, and to become the most beautiful and freaky version of myself. 📸 Roni Lugassi #q***rdos #performer #filmmaker #q***rdosberlin

Linards Kulless [visual artist + plant life aficionado]

I am an interdisciplinary visual artist born and raised in Riga, Latvia. For many years I worked as cultural manager in a couple of Riga art projects. Now I work in different media like video, photo and installation. My artistic playground includes theatre performances, paintings, outfit and interior concepts. Since 2001 I am also creating as a VJ . I exposed my work in art exhibitions since 1999 in many European countries. In my projects there are often found ethnographic influences, esoteric knowledge and a search for identity.

LUQUA BERTINI [set designer +dark wave fan]
**

I was born and raised in a small town in N-W France. When I turned 18, I did some studies in tourism. After 1 year, I discovered though that it was really not my thing and decided to quit and study interior design. So to pay for the school I wanted to apply to, I worked one year in a print factory close to my home town then I studied interior design for 3 years in apprenticeship. Only there I discovered the profession of set designer and really fell in love with it. It was exactly what I wanted to do. After my studies,
as I chose to move to Berlin, because the cities’ creative,free and tolerant reputation. The first 10 months, I worked as an intern for #fredpommerehn .After my internship, I decided to stay in Berlin. The city was very captivating and I met people I could start creating with. Since then, I developed into a polyvalent artist and worked in different fields : theatre plays, sets for events, illustration, video clip, performances.
HAPPY ANNIVERSARY Luqua Bertini and thank you for your inspiring work for Q***rdos Reunited/Unapologetic/Resistance and Violence . 📸Roni Lugassi❤️ #q***rdosberlin #setdesigner #q***rarrist #theatremakers

TransVision 5

TransVision 5 is coming…

It all started with the desire to transform the art scene during the COVID-19 pandemic. When the entire world was locked down in their own homes, we tried to find a way to bring Germany’s upcoming artists to people’s own homes.

That’s how the TransVision was born.

After broadcasting 4 successful shows from our home at The Ballery, we are ready for the fifth instalment of the show.

TransVision will be broadcast across Facebook, Instagram and our website.

There can be no Pride if it is not intersectional. Now more than ever, it is important to remember that the revolutionary riots at Stonewall in 1969 were spearheaded by many LGBTQ people of color and that none of the progress made for the acceptance and equality of LGBTQ people over the past 51 years would be possible if not for the action and courage of those protestors.

Our Story

QUEERDOS is a transdisciplinary performative ensemble focusing on initiating discourses and dialogues in the frame of an LGBTQI+ narrative. By engaging in theatrical work using mainly spoken word with various artists belonging to q***r minorities in Berlin and other cities where q***r politics are often ignored or looked down upon, we hope to promote acceptance and understanding on a larger scale; to utilize its great potential for impact.

Challenging gender binaries (male/female) and exposing the social coercion at the base of the performative nature of identity is already a political act, but Q***rdos aims at transcending beyond, through daring performances that mirror social or political misconduct, thus becoming an incentive towards proactive attitudes. Subjects such as abuse, trans and homophobia, racism, and xenophobia are very often addressed in our performances. We are aiming towards creating a platform for free speech and artistic expression in the q***r community, emphasising tolerance, integration and awareness in/of our ever growing environment. Spoken word as a performance lightens up the sometimes hard-to-digest political contexts through the usage of elements (singing, dancing, spoken word, stand-up comedy etc) which can reach a mixed audience.

Q***rdos aims at bringing the community of what society deems as ‘misfits’ together in a safe space for expression and learning.

QUEERDOS has a fixed cast and crew:

A little note for future events: There is more than black and white. There is something inbetween wearing a mask and covid denials. It‘s called ‚critical mind’. Not everyone fits in a box. There is enough black and white thinking everywhere. I think this is worth to be mentioned. (Refering to Cats corona rules introduction, which i followed.)
WHAT A RALLY! last saturday we demonstrated in front of the polish institution and we are more than thankful for all those who showed up against poland declaring LGBT freezones! poland, you can’t sit with us! -love and solidarity
