Rainbow's End - the European LGBTQ Movement

Video; Streaming Video; Online
Rainbow's End is a revealing and entertaining multinational journey throughout Europe, examining the progress of the LGBTQ movement during the mid-aughts. From parades and protests in Warsaw and Krakow to touching personal stories with social, religious and political insights, the film delves in every corner of the debate from street activism to the United Nations in Geneva, Switzerland. A starting point for any relevant discussion regarding LGBTQ rights within Europe and throughout the world. Canvassing the European countryside, Rainbow's End covers significant territory from Berlin partygoers looking for an online hookup who stumble upon an activist organization's website and rethink the relationship between gay culture and the internet to an English man fighting for the basic human rights of his lover who has been deported to Russia. The film delves into gay Arab men in the Netherlands, Polish protesters invoking memories of Auschwitz, and the violent hate crimes, providing a quick "101" on LGBTQ progress in Europe at the time, and invoking intersecting philosophies of nationalism, religion, and the neverending battles for human rights..
