Por Un Beso (For a Kiss), a new short film (shown here with captions in English) released in conjunction with Madrid Pride, is a reminder of the thrills of finding romance among faces in the crowd, and the dangers gay men continue to face in showing that love in a public place.

The film began shooting the day after the attacks in Orlando, director David Velduque told El País, adding, “I invested [in the film] because I think it is very necessary to not forget that the rights for which the LGTBI community has fought have been very difficult to achieve. It is very important not to forget that continued visibility, awareness and education is key to achieving a society where love is not penalized.”

The film was released at a tribute to Orlando victims in Pedro Zerolo Square and highlights the violence in Madrid against the LGBT community where there has already been at least 98 documented attacks.

Por Un Beso was made in collaboration with Spanish gay magazine Shangay and stars Pelayo Rocal and Fernando Hevia.
