Lulu Santos already says: We consider every form of love to be right. It is likely that many will disagree with this statement. This is why dates like the International day against homophobia is of paramount importance to society. To this end, and because I believe that dialogue and respect for differences are the way forward, Minha Series Favorite has selected five productions. After all, the seventh art has the power to make us think.

Also known as the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia, the date is celebrated on May 17. On this day, in 1990, the term homosexuality was dropped. Thus, homosexuality was excluded from the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems (ICD) of the World Health Organization (WHO). In Brazil, the date was added to the official calendar in 2010.
