The International Queer Film Festival celebrates the opening gala at Kampnagel with the film POLITICAL ANIMALS:

Everything has a beginning, but we’ve found two. A fabulous moderation duet from the capital: Kaey is an editor at a big queer magazine, singer and trans* activist. Together with the performance artist and force of nature, Hans Kellet, she will carry you through the fulminant Opening Gala into the festival week. The festival opens with a film introducing you to four impressive “Political Animals”. An award-winning documentary about four lesbian members of the California assembly and senate (1996–2012) who consequently opposed conservative colleagues and empowered the sociopolitical relevance of LGBT rights often in the face of obnoxious insults. Their tenacity lead to ground-breaking legislative changes, paving the way for other states in the US to follow suit. Numerous excerpts of parliamentary speeches testify to the vehemence of their political stance: “It doesn’t pay to be a good girl. You need to be a bad girl.”
