Perspectives: Indianare Siqueira
Perspectives: Brazilian Transrevolutionaries at the Edge of Democracy • 36m
Curator and Director of Your Mother's Comfort Adam Golub sits down with the legendary Indianare Siqueira - human rights activist and the central subject of that documentary - as she leads her congressional "campaign of the peripheries" to represent the state of Rio de Janeiro in this year's general election in Brazil. At a moment in history when fundamental civil liberties and life itself for LGBTQ+ people are on the line, and with many trans candidates on the ballot, Indianare speaks to the importance of creating visibility to deliver justice and a more representative government. In a wide-ranging conversation touching on issues from the challenges of coalition-building to the vital, ongoing work of the Nem House (featured in Your Mother's Comfort) and the personal risks and political realities of fighting for LGBTQ+ and workers' rights in the age of Bolsonaro, Indianare expresses a passionate commitment to the ultimate work of liberation in building real power for the people.
