A beautiful tribute to “Peter Tatchell, controversial activist” on Netflix, the harbinger of LGBTQI + rights

He is the first gay pride in London. Like Mugabe’s fake arrest and many other spectacular actions. Produced by Elton John, this documentary subtly describes the ups and downs of Peter Tatchell’s fifty years of activism.

In the 1980s, Peter Tatchell was considered “Britain’s most hated man” »… a description which he declares to be eclipsed with pride today. Committed to the gay liberation front upon arriving in London in the late sixties, this Australian exile alone symbolizes fifty years of struggle for the rights of LGBTQI + people. A dedicated worker, with direct action methods and positions that are always far from being unanimous.

A rich and concise documentary produced by Christopher Amos, journalist and LGBTQI + activist, Elton John and David Furnish dedicates to him. Many of the archive images of demonstrations and extremist actions are accompanied by the beliefs of Peter Tatchell – whom Amogh calmly admires – but also of his entourage: his mother, Angela Mason (activist within the Stonewell organization, who defends LGBTQIA + rights Is), or Chris Smith (the leading openly gay cabinet in the world).

Great effect

From the organization of the first gay pride in London (1972) to the inclusion of AIDS in the British political agenda (under the Thatcher government), in which many efforts to organize Moscow demonstrations to protect the rights of the people are LGBTQI +, or Zimbabwean Fantasy arrests are included. President Robert Mugabe (in London in 1999, then in 2001 in Brussels) to condemn his regime’s human rights restrictions … This one-and-a-half-hour documentary is almost too short to comprehensively address the life of Peter Tatchell’s commitments.
