LGTBI Memory Recovery of Sitges
Our LGTBI history in Sitges is a collective history and is part of the history of Sitges. And we want to claim that we also build history, the history of Sitges.
In an attempt to keep alive many of the aspects of LGTB life of the past, in Sitges, CSL is involved in two projects:
Table for memory
Under this title we begin the cycle “Memory Table” which aims to be a meeting and discussion space, in which those responsible for the activity that belong to the Memory Working Group of CSL (GdTmemoriaCSL) will introduce the topic from the point of view of oral and audiovisual memory, and guidelines will be given that can encourage memories, experiences, memory and/or reflections of the attendees. It also wants to be a space for dialogue in which to listen, evoke, share and remember.
Pepito Zamora Exhibition
José Zamora (Madrid, 1889 – Sitges, 1971) lives one of those strains that number a thousand: painter, draftsman, costumer for the Casino de Paris, writer, fashion designer and author of so many other talents that he executed between Madrid. and the French capital. With the German occupation of France in 1941, Marx left Paris to settle in Sitges, where he lived for the rest of his life and became involved in designing the carpet for the Corpus of Cap de the Vila. The Associació Colors Sitges Link dedicates an exhibition to his figure, with the aim of expanding upon his arrival.
CSL regularly organizes this activity directed by Isidre Roset. It is a walk through Sitges from a reading based on the resignification of the most emblematic places, paying special attention to the LGTBI + past of the city.

It is a project initiated by Brandon Jones, the Video Documentary “100 years of Gay History in Sitges” has been produced. This documentary with the support of Colors Sitges Link was presented on June 28, 2018 at the Prado Cinema.

Every year Colors Sitges Link schedules a conference by Stephen Boyce, member of CSL and activist in England of the most in LGTB history through the board of directors of the association School’s Out</em >.
The history of gay, lesbian, transsexual and bisexual people is under construction, another look and a reasoned historical discourse could help us understand why Sitges has been so attractive to the various heteronormative communities.
