“Intolerance is still out there”, absolutely true. The Moroccan king, just to give one cruel example, is gay himself but locks up and discriminates against homosexuals in his country. As long as we don’t accept ourselves, as long as we don’t like how we are, we will not be able to be really tolerant with others, not just with words, but with facts. Not, because someone says he is not racist, he is a good person. We should listen more to facts and acts than just believe in words, opinions and empty phrases. Be yourself and let others be themselves, too. Show with your daily attitude that you are tolerant and open-minded. Don’t tell your kids to treat people equally, show it to them, be an example – the best education there is.
“#Intolerance is still out there”, is a short film about the riots that happened in New York’s Stonewall Inn in June 1969. This uprising consisted of a series of spontaneous demonstrations and riots in protest of a police raid. These events are remembered as the first time ever that the LGBTI+ community rose up against a system that persecuted people because of their sexual orientation with the consent of the government.
That night is widely recognized as the catalyst of the LGBTI+ rights movement in the USA and the rest of the world. With impeccable cinematography and creativity, this film also tells the story of Julio Zuniga, a Mexican gay rights activist, and footballer in the LGBTI+ league. Zuniga was never in the Stonewall riots or even present in the filming of “Intolerance is still out there”, he was murdered in Mexico in 2017, the victim of a hate crime because of his sexuality. But thanks to the innovative technology of face replacement and 3D in this film “he returns to life” to remind us all that, unfortunately, 50 years later, intolerance still exists.
”The Stonewall riots led to the start of modern LGBTI+ liberation, vital for social change. Unfortunately, there are still heroes like Julio Zuñiga who have paid for the right to love with their lives” adds Miguel Ángel Fernández, director of the Pedro Zerolo Foundation, an activist and sexual tolerance campaigner. “79 countries around the world continue to imprison and persecute people because of their sexual orientation and 41% of the LGBTI+ population have suffered an attack in the last year according to the EU Agency for Basic Rights.”
In 2019, “Racism is still there” was the first content launched on the platform. That time the film starred Jesse Owens, one of the 18 Afro-American athletes who competed in the 1936 Berlin Olympic Games. The film showed his experiences on his journey to the famous Olympic stadium, showing the racial discrimination that existed at that time and which sadly still happens in sport today.
