Love Lazers is continuing its Activist Streams with public Live Talks from Bogotá, Pereira and Berlin July – Sep 2021!!!
WHY DO WE NEED LLTV?
For a better tomorrow it is about real access and participation, sustainable spaces for creative, political action and a future of taking up political positions without concern. How do we fight for it in times of corona regulations and police shooting protesting people? How can we join forces for decolonial action and transatlantic queer realness in a changing world? What is happening in Colombia at the moment exposes that we need to educate ourselves politically: How do we build space/s for transdisciplinary action that lead to something? Do we need to make our vulnerabilities visible to fight stigma? And how can we express utopian visions of joy here?
We start a new project that includes live streams, talk shows, curated screenings & exhibitions in order to present positions of shared interests of activism and art practice and everything that happens in-between – adapted to the local situations in Pereira, Bogotá and Berlin. Our aim is to broadcast independent voices and raise awareness, bring people together, build social spaces (covid-conforme), strengthen international connections and support for protests in Colombia.
Act local, talk global! – Love Lazers (as LLTV) is networking with local institutions/activists working in this field and has contacts with groups like ALThaus and Tupamaras (Vogue groups from Pereira and Bogotá). Thereby Love Lazers is continuing internet streams started in March from Bogotá and Berlin.
We are supporting the FRENTE RESISTENCIA TRANS-FEMINISTA MARIKON, a new queer network to unite the diverse groups, movements and interests and to fight together against policies in the country that permanently hinde and restrict queer rights and participation (currently in the process of being founded in response to the experiences since the beginning of the national strike).
LOVE LAZERS HOT TOPICS:
LLTV focus on spreading information on new forms of safer sex and safer drug use – and giving statements concerning stigmas and emancipation. All that is based on a collective self-organized and activist-led perspective. Trying to make the content accessible to everyone is therefore a matter of course.
mid of JUL – mid of SEP: weekly Thursdays, 8pm (local time) LLTV from COL and GER; every show will be repeated on the other continent the monday after, 8pm (local time COL or GER)

FRENTE RESISTENCIA TRANS-FEMINISTA MARIKON (RESISTANCE FRONT TRANS-FEMINISTA MARIKON) > HOW TO BUILD SUSTAINABLE NETWORKS +++ LET’S TALK ABOUT: GETTING HIGH IN THE AFTERMATH OF THE PANDEMIC.
