People Like That

People Like That is a film in five parts by Hrafnhildi Gunnarsdóttir about the life of gays and lesbians in Iceland for four decades. The episodes trace their fight for human rights, human dignity, and visibility, from the first indication that their movement was sparked in the mid-1970s to the time when radical legal reforms regarding gay family rights were in the offing. In the first episode, the focus is on the silencing, silence, and humiliation of the previous years, and in the second episode, the early years of the 1978 Association and the struggle of the pioneers are told. The third episode discusses AIDS and the suffering that the disease caused the gay community, and the fourth episode traces the history of the fight for fair legislation, especially in the field of family law. Finally, the threads are drawn together in the fifth and last part where the full history is looked at.
