Myanmar’s largely-hidden lesbian community was a focus of the second &Proud LGBT film festival at the French Institute in Yangon from January 28 to 31.

The first edition of the festival, which features movies about the lives of LGBT (lesbian, gay, bi and transgender) people in Myanmar and throughout Asia, was held in November 2014.

The festival aims to give greater visibility to the LGBT community in Myanmar while also helping it to find expression through the cinema.
