HOMOSEXUAL to confinement: THE CASE OF THE ISLANDS TREMITI
Initiative shared by Gaycs – Department of LGBT Aics.From 7 to 9 June 2013 – Island of San Domino / Isole. They were not detained because they had committed no crime. Their crime was to belong to a category with uncertain boundaries, to potentially dangerous individuals to public order, to be removed from the social fabric. So it was that prostitutes, people with physical and mental disabilities, members of ethnic and religious minorities and others – they can not be imprisoned for any violation of the law – were exiled by the Fascist regime. The same fate befell primarily to homosexuals, inverted, the arrusi is estimated that three hundred were sentenced to confinement in Italy; Tremiti Islands their concentration was extraordinary, around 56 individuals, as a community that was integrated with the territory and found the courage to survive with dignity and hope. To commemorate this page of history,Speakers: Vladimir Luxuria, artist, promoter of civil rights, creator of the initiative; Gianfranco Goretti, vice president of Rainbow Families, author of the book “The city and the island. Homosexuals in exile in fascist “(Donzelli Editore); Giusy D’Alconzo, campaigns and research office director Amnesty International – Italian; Sandra Namutebi, leader of the Freedom and Roam Uganda Association; Lucia Caponera, National Secretariat Arcilesbica; Flavio Romans, president National Arcigay; Adriano Bartolucci Proietti, the Gaycs national coordinator; Andrea Maccarrone, president of Circle of Culture Mario Mieli Homosexual; Aurelio Mancuso, president of Equality Italy; Imma Battaglia, President Di’Gay Project; Francesca Corazzieri, representative Albatros – Project Paul Pinto. The event was meant as a tribute to the memory and a cry for freedom, a way to remember together a page of our recent history, we can not afford to forget. “The extremism – the organizers emphasized – especially in the economic and social crisis like the one we are going through phases, are still there and leverage on weakness, loneliness, ignorance, fear. The memory is powered so that certain mistakes are not repeated again and are sent into internal exile once and for all words such as exclusion, racism, violence, dictatorship.”Some questions posed to the Coordinator of Gaycs on the value of this initiative. Why have you decided to promote this initiative? And ‘the most natural that we can do what we were born only two years as a social promotion association with the name of GAYCS LGBT, it’s in our DNA to support cultural initiatives like this, the “C” of our name represents the “Culture” , history and everything in the memory of each of us can keep alive the memory of the suffering and hardship of those that our fellow citizens have suffered only because gay in the fascist period through the confinement. What role can the story in the interpretation of current events? Unfortunately it is often said “courses and historical claims” and so it is! History teaches and helps to read the contemporary facts. Today, like yesterday, we need to keep our guard up. Misinformation especially among the younger age groups is rampant and the overall picture is very worrying. Through the story, the “story”, we can make an enormous contribution aimed to thin the distance between knowledge and ignorance, because this is the main cause of homophobia. Not knowing the history, the events of the past helps to increase the gap between “different” from every point of view feeds the fear and mistrust towards those who are different from us. Can you describe in a few words what you think the current state of LGBT people in Italy? The people LGBT lives today, in Italy, certainly better conditions than in the recent past. The huge boost given by acquired rights in many Western countries has accelerated, even in public opinion generally, the need to recognize equal rights for all, all of this because, as sappiamo- civil society is always ahead of government institutions. The risk, and I hang up the previous question, is that you do not complete this process of recognition thus determining social involution dangerous that could slide into serious social unrest. How to overcome the homo-lesbo-transphobia in today’s society? The when we will overcome the “fear” of having close those who are different from us will be replaced by “happiness” to live in a world of individuals who respect each other in their “diversity”. To achieve this it is our duty to continue the daily struggle for the recognition, protection and promotion of egalitarian rights for all. The state’s duty and institutions in general must be to ensure a model, as inclusive as possible, social liveability through a garantista legislation to the rights but also be able to pursue all forms of racism and violence towards others. The LGBT associations, through its activities, must be the guarantors of this evolutionary process that can lead society in general towards the overcoming of what I call the disease of the century the omotransfobia.

DOOR OF PSYCHOLOGICAL HELP GAYCS “HELP ME!”
The door listening to GAYCS is a neutral space where everyone can talk about themselves and their problems in a climate of non-judgment and professional secrecy. At the counter there is a psychologist ready to listen, help and support you, with special attention to issues related to the reality of people LGBTQI (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex), as the acceptance of their sexual orientation, problems related to the definition of gender identity or sexual, coming out, intimacy, sexuality and conflict in same-sex couple relationships, omogenitoriali families and homophobia. Some, still, considering the reality LGBTQI as a pathology and try, in vain, and with serious psychological repercussions, to return to “normal” individuals who live it. Such approaches, called “reparative therapies” have no scientific basis and are wrongly defined and deceptively “therapeutic”. Therefore, in accordance with all bodies and medical and psychological associations and all international studies on the subject, Gaycs and the listening branch operators are opposed to all at interventions “was leaving” or “sexual reorientation.” At the counter can be accessed by anyone (adolescents, adults, couples and families) provided it is duly registered in Gaycs / Aics. Special attention is paid to the LGBTQI people and those who are their neighbors. The first meeting is free of knowledge. If you decide, together, starting an aid route, the cost of subsequent meetings will be much easier in order to allow anyone who feels the need to access the service. The service takes place at the Rome headquarters of Gaycs and through chat.

The dance is by nature a form of art and communication that transcends and exceeds the language barriers and yet still his now recognized artistic and educational value is difficult to establish. “Love extraños, stani loves – Dance Against Homophobia” is the title that represents the significance of this project to emphasize the “diversity” who through love finds its explanation. Hence the idea of wanting to communicate through this show, the emotions and thoughts “rational and not” crossing every day and every moment of life for all. Thoughts and actions that grow with us and that through the different experiences accompany us to maturity and the awareness of what we are and we want to be. Among the emotions, love is what is most interesting to point out through this show, because this is the point of greatest question that many times we ask, and is the deepest feeling and sensitive to when having to give the most important answers.
FOOTBALL AND HOMOPHOBIA: MONDAY May 18 FLASH MOB IN SUPPORT WOMEN’S FOOTBALL
The words attributed by the press to Felice Belloli, who as president of the National Amateur League would despise the women’s game by saying “just give money to these four lesbians” have not gone unnoticed, especially in the important days of the global week against the homo-transphobic , where even the LGBTI sport has given an important contribution to a battle of civilization for the respect of the people, as also demonstrated that the tournament in Naples against homophobia in the presence of mayor De Magistris. Regardless of who within the federal council NLD has given a similar sentence, we are outraged at the thought of all those athletes and female athletes, professional and amateur, who heard these statements in the media must have thought once again that it is better to keep hidden his sexual identity. We are outraged by the profound contempt of a beautiful reality of our sport like that of the women’s game that should strengthen the idea of confrontation and encounter as also called for the President of the Republic Sergio Mattarella and the delegate of the Prime Minister for Giovanna Martelli equal opportunity, on the occasion of World Day against homophobia, emphasizing precisely the value of sport that creates aggregation and union.

THEATER “7 DOORS” – July 2015
GAYCS 7 DOORS 2.0 presenting a show of Antonio Tiberini – THEATER Furio Camillo ROME. 7 doors, 7 stories, 7 players, 7 symbols masks 7, 7 worlds, 7 fears. 7 doors leads viewers on a journey in stages, marked symbolically by 7 doors, a trip that takes its cue from a contemporary reinterpretation of the traditional seven deadly sins and departs from them, overcoming them and reinventing them, and projects himself into situations and experiences of everyday life . The dance language is the medium of expression used to dig deep into the human soul, laying bare the fears, anxieties and temptations in which every viewer is invited to recognize appealing to his personal experience. What emerges is a humanity tormented and fragile that, despite the particularities of their individuality, shares the same reality. What contemporary. appears as a social unnatural, artificial, able to divide people by isolating them in a projected fight selfishly towards their individual affirmation. The fear of the other, the stranger, to feel surrounded and approved, stress and job uncertainty, the slavery of addiction, and no ability to express themselves in a way where communication and “social” do nothing but make us feel more alone. These are the modern ills of our time. The 7 is a symbolic number representing one common insecurity / weakness behind where everyone is hiding, apparently erecting masks to feel protected but in fact suspended in a precarious balance. The awareness of this truth is the starting point from which man can begin to discover a new confidence in the group and feeling so free at last, and only in the plurality.

The MEASURE OF OTHERS ramblings tragicomic intolerance 2016 UNDER THE PATRONAGE OF GAYCS
From an idea of Guido Del Vento, written and directed by Lupaioli Lucilla and Alessandro Di Marco, with Guido Del Vento and Tullia Di Nardo lights and sound Sirio Lupaioli. “The people’s measure” is a study that explores ironically the theme of diversity and the difficulty of managing and integrating categories that often feel different and far from us. A young man, mirror the thinking of many of us, meets and clashes with the ancestral fear of not being enough, not to be adequate, even dressing the characters shoes uncomfortable and uncomfortable than he. Leave the floor to a disabled person, immobilized in a wheelchair, upset with a gay man who lives in his own palace, angry, in turn, with a mother under pressure – outlet and lost between diapers and meals children to prepare – which hints at a trans does not tolerate the disabled because they believe that a man in a wheelchair should not ask every day, unlike her permission to be herself. The characters of this show play with words and with their lives, they pass the word, interacting with the audience, alternating rhythms, laughter and reflections to test the waters where you can still root that binds them to the seed of intolerance. Trying to eradicate it. The text, the brainchild of Guido del Vento and wrote and revised Lupaioli Lucilla and Alessandro Di Marco following a principle of circularity of the hearing, following an irregular pattern, just like the inputs that come from thought and from the heart and is the also the result of a personal work on their own intolerance and the desire to turn them into acceptance and love. The presence of an alter ego, another look, played by Tullia Di Nardo, actress and performer, focuses on the need for discussion and exchange on a topic that touches every one of us.

Where nothing is commanded by the mind but only by the impulse of the body. Men are beasts, which are angels, they are demons. The violence comes up against the credulity in a sea of brutality, where Rosaria, John’s cousin, is everything to him. Sister, girlfriend, mother and daughter. There is room for love, there is no room for revenge. But everything has a price. John will serve him through the eyes ambiguous and violent and body button and dashing of Joseph, dance teacher, only love-lover John. “I hug him and tell him that I have to say very important things. I tell him that I am his, even the female I would have done that in the hospital told me that I have AIDS. ” “He told me that I was a fagot shit, I had to die soon and that dancing I sucked.” The play for his commitment to awareness and information on important social issues such as AIDS, diversity and acceptance, was sponsored by ROME CAPITAL Department of Cultural Affairs and Historical Center, Italy NPS (Network People Nuke), from Catania LILA (Italian League for Fighting AIDS), GAYCS, ARCI GAY CATANIA, stonewall, GAY CENTER, ANDOS, Di’Gay PROJECT, CIRCLE MARIO MIELI.
