On the occasion of the World Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia, the dASA association is offering a program of events around gender issues.

Throughout the year, the dASA association (Développement et animation Sud Auvergne) works around youth and culture. With its “cultural resources”, the association focused on the world day against homophobia and transphobia, May 17. A few days before, to raise awareness among Brivadois and highlight those we don’t talk about too much, she organized the event Tout tout ton genre.

For two days, documentary screening, workshop and reading will be on the program. A program which had already started, “in April, with the arrival of a sociologist”, Joëlle Braeuner to talk about gender identity.

Film debate, workshop, reading evening…

The first major event of this second part will be the film debate, at 8:30 p.m. at the Le Paris cinema, around the documentary Little girl by Sébastien Lifshitz. The film follows the life of Sacha, born a girl in a boy’s body, his daily life, the questions of his parents, his brothers and sisters, the fight of this family to make people understand the difference…

The next day, go to the Allier room of the Instruction building for a workshop. Claude Boillet, choreographer, dancer and documentarian, will bring photos. “Images collected by artists and historians, mainly at garage sales or photo exchanges,” she explains. Looking at them, we don’t know anything. “We don’t know who took the photo, who is in it… Are these friendly clinches? between two sisters?” The Our Queer Ancestors Insist on Letting Theirselves Be Seen workshop will be there to play “recovery” games, “with performative know-how”.

The group will use speaking and writing in order to multiply the voices and ways of sharing with these images. “We will use the medium of the living, of the body to strike a pose and try to say what we feel in a duo, trio, quartet…” But be careful, this work will be carried out in a chosen mix: “without straight cisgender boys” . For what ? “We will intend to constitute knowledge which is situated, which is carried. The writings will be conveyed by those mainly concerned,” she explains.
