Within the Queer and Rebel-days, the Entzaubert crew has
organized a special program on the theme of queer resistance.
Resisting capitalism, homophobia, conformity, gender stereotypes,
racism, globalization, assimilation, HIV stigmatization,
gentrification, and nuclear-powered central heating!

Innerhalb der Queer und Rebel Tage auf dem Schwarzen Kanal, präsentiert Entzaubert Filme von und über Queer Widerstand im weitesten Sinne:
Queers widersetzen sich : dem Kapitalismus, der Homophobie, Systemzwängen, Gender-Stereotypen, Rassismus, Globalisierung, Anpassung, HIV-Stigmatisierung, Gentrifizierung*, und atomstromheizungen!

*ua. städtebaulicher Prozess, bei dem in einem Wohngebiet eine statusniedrige Bevölkerung durch eine statushöhere Bevölkerung ausgetauscht wird.

Not every act of resistance is loud and strident. In this almost
