London dyke Ren navigates the treacherous terrain of the Berlin queer scene. From speed-dating to bondage, meditation to menstrual cup mishaps, each unfortunate adventure adds to Ren’s confused love CV until the only way out is to send a few mixed messages of her own. One year single on the Berlin queer scene – how hard can it be? This sharp witted and cringingly awkward comedy of ill manners shows the flipside to the hipster image of Berlin.
A queer king, a gay mayor, Marlene Dietrich in Blue Angel, David Bowie in the ‘70s, Audre Lorde in the ‘80s: Berlin has long been a magnet for LGBTIQ icons and allies. From the wild days of the 1920s and the dark days of persecution under the Nazis through to the Cold War. Hear about the club scene of the 90s, the unlikely queer icon Frederick the Great, and the life of the openly gay Nazi, Ernst Röhm. Explore world-famous, Schöneberg, once the central district of the sapphic Berlin, home of philosopher and war journalist Erika Mann, chronicled by painter Otto Dix and writer Christopher Isherwood.Discuss the queer community of Berlin and all the communities it intersects with by visiting Kreuzberg, where as far back as the 1600's, many waves of LGBTIQ and immigrant diasporas have come to determine "nobody flees without a reason".On this tour we accept anyone that considers themselves LGBTIQ, an ally, or who’s just plain interested. Everyone is welcome!
Earnest is a banker who finds his work and personal life thrown upside down after he meets and quickly falls in love with Tobi, a flighty, high energy performance artist who lives for the city’s wild nightlife. The two are complete opposites but they want to make it work and need all the help they can get from Tobi’s coterie of alternative friends. But when Earnest’s friend Uta arrives on the scene she thinks Earnest can do much better and schemes to break them apart–setting off a frenzied battle of the ‘fashionista’ divas. Funny, fresh and unpredictable this light-hearted romp through queer Berlin and a few of its colorful characters makes Men to Kiss an absolute delight!

Peter Fechter: 59 Minutes chronicles the last hour of Peter Fechter's life, a teenager in East Berlin shot while attempting to cross the Berlin Wall in 1962 with his companion. Finally, the award-winning rihannaboi95 centers around a Toronto teen whose world comes crashing in when YouTube videos of him dancing to songs by his favorite pop heroine go viral.

Anti-racist and queer politics have tentatively converged in the activist agendas, organizing strategies and political discourses of the radical left all over the world. Pejoratively dismissed as "identity politics", the significance of this cross-pollination of theorizing and political solidarities has yet to be fully countenanced. Even less well understood, coalitions of anti-racist and queer activisms in western Europe have fashioned durable organizations and creative interventions to combat regnant anti-Muslim and anti-migrant racism within mainstream gay and lesbian culture and institutions, just as the latter consolidates and capitalizes on their uneven inclusions into national and international orders. The essays in this volume represent a small snapshot of writers working at this point of convergence between anti-racist and queer politics and scholarship from the context of Germany. Translated for the first time into English, these four writers and texts provide a compelling introduction to what the introductory essay calls "a Berlin chapter of the Queer Intersectional", that is, an international justice movement conducted in the key of academic analysis and political speech which takes inspiration from and seeks to synthesize the fruitful concoction of anti-racist, queer, feminist and anti-capitalist traditions, movements and theories. With contributions by Judith Butler, Zülfukar Çetin, Sabine Hark, Daniel Hendrickson, Heinz-Jürgen-Voß, Salih Alexander Wolter and Koray Yilmaz-Günay
