The first film to have dealt with homosexuality was Anders als die Andem (1919), in which a man meets a young man during a dance, takes him home and strokes (shortly) his chest (absolutely dressed). That was all and enough: the taboo about showing sexual contact between men had been broken, at least by insinuation. In Rio Festival Gay de Cinema, the kiss is what will send shievers.

The international films will aproach genders and sexualities as the public of Rio Festival Gay de Cinema 2013 is diverse.
