PERSONAS ESCANDALOSAS QUE NO CABEN EN EL MUNDO is a piece against homophobia, born from the need to shatter the silence, taboo, shame, guilt, social stigma, fear and selfcensure that surround it.
It’s a study of the idea that gender and identity are linked to sexual preferences. It’s a story that’s both personal and collective, allowing a vision of existing heteropatriarchal and homophobic behaviour patterns, the consequences of the traditions and normativity that have conditioned sexual partnerships among homosexuals.
It’s the story of a boy born in the 90s in one of the peripheral Barcelona neighbourhoods who was homophobic before he was homosexual. It’s an exploration of frustration and self-renunciation as we try to find answers for that boy who was born, grew up, tried to love by fucking and was finally able to leave the Free Trade Zone.
It’s the story of a country that has cornered, silenced and ignored everything that could supposedly be classed as lewd behaviour. A country that has obscured, forgotten, censored, stigmatised, determined, judged and sentenced.
