The LGTBQIA+ PRBB group, created in 2021 and currently formed by around thirty people, meets monthly to discuss and organize activities, whether training or dissemination of topics of interest or social activities open to the community. “The group aims to create community and develop LGTBIQA+ actions to have more inclusive centers,” says Raúl Torán, ISGlobal worker and coordinator of the LGTBIAQ+@PRBB group, who encourages anyone interested to join.

Cine Forum

As part of its activities, this year the group is organizing the screening of a series of films with LGTBIAQ+ protagonists or themes. The films are shown in their original version, subtitled in English or Spanish.

The next film, screening April 16 at 6pm in the Marie Curie room of the PRBB, will be The Imitation Game, a 2014 biographical thriller film directed by Morten Tyldum and written by Graham Moore, based on the biography from 1983 “Alan Turing: The Enigma” by Andrew Hodges.

The film follows cryptanalyst Alan Turing – played by Benedict Cumberbatch – who deciphered German intelligence messages for the British government during World War II – only to be convicted later on for being homosexual.
