BROKEN RAINBOW UK is the only National LGBT Domestic Violence Helpline providing confidential support to all members of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans (LGBT) communities, their family and friends, and agencies supporting them. http://www.brokenrainbow.org.uk/
LGBT communities have changed radically. Within the last five years, new legislation has given us rights and equalities that we could not have imagined only a decade ago. We have become confident and bold, challenging oppression and able to make demands. However, we are only just beginning to acknoledge the presence of domestic abuse and domestic violence within our community.
Broken Rainbow UK is dedicated to bringing the issue out into the open, raising awareness, and offering help and support to those whose lives have been affected by domestic violence or domestic abuse.
Our objective is to relieve the distress and suffering caused to lesbians, gay men, bisexual and transgender people by domestic violence and abuse, in particular but not exclusively by doing the following:
- Raising awareness in the LGBT communities and elsewhere of the impact of homophobic, transphobic and same sex domestic violence on the lives of LGBT people;
- Offering advice, support and referral services to LGBT people experiencing homophobic, transphobic and same sex domestic violence;
- Offering information, advice and training to people who are responsible for domestic violence policy and practice in mainstream and specialist organisations, or who are otherwise involved with the survivors and perpetrators of those suffering from domestic violence, with a view to increasing the physical safety and mental well-being of LGBT people who experience such violence or abuse.

Katarina Peters’ documentary observes a Diane Torr workshop in Berlin in which a group of open-minded women come together to discover the secrets of masculinity. What makes a man a man and a woman a woman? Precisely when and where is gender identity formatted? How much is nature and how much nurture? Each of Torr’s workshops represents an open-ended laboratory experiment in social behaviour in which the question is posed: is it possible to deliberately play out different roles and create a space in which to transgress both masculine and feminine characteristics?
Post film Q&A with Diane Torr and the film-makers
