Mostra la Ploma  at the Universitat de València

The 5th edition of Mostra la Ploma Festival that was presented the last Friday (October 11th) at Centre del Carmen introduces a new parallel section unofficial: Mostra la Ploma at the Universitat.

The fact that the festival’s dates are moved to October has allowed for including into the Benvinguda’s programme and get close to younger people, said Ruth Mestre, head of Iniciatives de Diversitat (Diversity Initiatives) of the Universitat.  Mestre has pointed out that it is important to put closer to the student body the problems included in the programme, which this year focuses on the trans world.

On October 22th, 23th and 24th will be projected a selection of short films in three Campus of the Universitat de València to get to know and discuss about some current questions of the LGTBIQ+ Community around the world.
