Underground Pleasures / Placeres Subterráneos

The memory of homosexuals during the armed conflict has been hidden and scattered among several inaccessible archives, as part of a fragmentary past diluted in thousands police reports, court sentences, or criminal histories that qualify this people as inverted, deviated, criminals, faggots, perverts, shallow. In the fights for visibility and acknowledgement of their condition as victims of State terrorism, they resist a hegemonic memory discourse and demand to be recognized –they and their suffering–. Let their demands for respect be heard and let their confrontation with an inert memory allow to think of their future.
