Join queer loox and Luxembourg Pride on July 9 as we dive deep into our shared history with a screening of Basil Dearden's 1961 neo-noir thriller Victim.
Lawyer Melville Farr (Dirk Bogarde) takes up the case of a worker who is blackmailed for being homosexual at the cost of derailing his promising career.
Now considered a classic of British film history, the film was the first of its kind in Great Britain to address gayness explicitly and deal with it in an open and emphatic manner, and it is largely credited with liberalising attitudes towards homosexuality in Great Britain and its later decriminalisation in 1967.

In collaboration with Luxembourg Pride, Rosa Lëtzebuerg, and Cercle Cité
