The collective #VoteLGBT launched today (9) the LGBTflix platform to make national films with themes on sexual diversity free of charge. There are 60 productions already available on the platform, all directed by Brazilian filmmakers, several of them belonging to the LGBTQ + community.
The goal is to offer people the opportunity to consume more inclusive content, during quarantine motivated by the new coronavirus. All films and documentaries were made available by the directors, or were already available on sites such as YouTube or Vimeo.
With this, the collective hopes to reach LGBTQ + people who do not have access to other services of this type. According to the official website “our gallery is an art project, it is completely free, and has no relation to any streaming platform”.
The platform also has a thematic filter, through the acronym LGBT +. Just click on any of the lyrics and the site redirects to the films that address the specific content.
As the platform’s catalog is still under construction, most of the productions are short films and documentaries. Among the highlights are the short film Eu Não Quero Voltar Alzinho, by Daniel Ribeiro, and the documentary Que os Olhos Ruins Não te Enxerguem, a documentary directed by Roberto Maty and Thabata Vecchio.
