Local News: Fab &PROUD Yangon LGBT Film Festival 2018
&PROUD is a non-profit initiative of a number of organizations and individuals in Yangon. They were established in 2014 and organize cultural events in Myanmar for the LGBT community and aim to bring together the community. And they aim to make LGBTs more visible to the rest of the Myanmar society. With their events they want to create greater understanding and awareness of LGBT identities, to be part of the conversation on LGBT rights, and to create stronger linkages within the community and with the Myanmar society.
And it is happening now in Yangon, as the 4th edition from January 27 to February 4 with films, performances, lip sync battles, Q&As with film makers, drag Olympics, parties, panel discussions, DJs and many beautiful people.
From tomorrow February 1 to 4, &PROUD will be at French Institute with their usual film and event programme. Daytime screenings are indoors and the main screenings are open air on the beautiful lawn of the institute. The event is free of charge and tickets are not required.
