Family group protests government sponsorship of gay film festival in Chile


The organization Accion Familia in Chile has launched a protest over the government’s sponsorship of the “Lesbian/Gay/Transgender Film Festival” that will screen movies promoting homosexuality during the month of October.

Accion Familia denounced the film festival that will screen movies at well known cultural centers, libraries and universities in Chile's capital of Santiago October 1—November 21. “According to information released by the government’s Council on Culture and the homosexual lobby, the short films that will be screened during this festival ‘will address homosexuality and transexuality in childhood and adolescence, … first loves, blind dates, activism and sexual diversity in schools,” the organization said.

It also warned that the festival includes films that are intended to encourage young people “to accept such conduct.” Among the places where the festival is being held is the cultural center “Palacio La Moneda,” where schools often bring students on cultural field trips.
