Apart from great films, you can also come to lectures and discussions at Mezipatra, meet interesting Czech and foreign guests, and find out why some people sound more “gay” than others, what is “normporn,” or what is the representation of trans* people in film and media like.
On Saturday, 7th Nov, come to Talking About My Genderation discussion where the British youtuber, activist and documentarist Fox Fisher will focus on the representation of trans* people in film and media. On Sunday, 8th Nov, get the traditional brunch at Café Neustadt and stay for the subsequent discussion, Do I Sound Gay?. We'll talk with the phonetician Jan Stober and actor Michal Kern about the way your voice and speech influence how you're perceived. You don't know what's “normporn”? Doesn't matter, you can find out on 8th November at a lecture by Karen Tongson who focuses on the norms of family depicted in popular TV shows. And those who stay in the cinema on 9th November after the screening of This Kind of Love can enjoy the discussion with the film's protagonist, a Burmese activist and supporter of local queer community, Aung Myo Min.
