València, t’estime is the first documentary that narrates the LGTBI history of Valencia from the 70s to the beginning of the 2000s. A crucial moment where the social explosion, the desire for freedom and the exploration of sexuality mark the beginning of the egalitarian struggle. The film relies upon more than a dozen testimonies that marked a before and after in the Valencian struggle where, for the first time, activists, historical figures, drag queens, businessmen and historians come together to form a unique and still unknown story. With valuable unpublished audiovisual material, we enter a Valencia that proved to be open and plural. The first demonstrations and lgtbiphobic attacks, the Brigada 26, the Moviment d’Alliberament Gai del Pais Valencià, the beginnings of Lambda, nightlife venues, cabaret, the trans struggle, AIDS, Ploma 2, Rampova’s last testimony, the first gay bookstore in the city, the first lesbian collective in the Valencian Community… These are just some of the themes that are narrated to tell a universal struggle: to be able to be free and love whoever you want without fear.
