This documentary is a tribute to Barcelona’s elderly LGBTQI, to the “Silent Generation” forced to remain hidden, to the movement’s pioneers as well as to those who have remained anonymous. A collection of testimonies where those concerned talk about the powerful events and moments which have marked their life: religious education, the repression of the Franco dictatorship, the birth of democracy, the first LGTBQI associations, the fight against AIDS and legalisation same-sex marriage.
