Nestor Perlongher was an Argentine poet, sociologist, political activist and one of the founders of the Homosexual Liberation Front. By focusing on this important activist, a humorous and nostalgic collage of images, letters, and testimonies of members of the Homosexual Liberation Front movement help reconstruct a little-known part of Latin American history: the struggle of homosexuals during the years of change and repression in the 1970s.
