TW:

First love, first romance, first sexual experience. We never stop learning. From the moment we are born, we experience new things every day. 'Firsts' is a special program that brings together the new and unique moments. Often so fragile, yet long lasting. Each of the six films in the program allows you to witness an LGBTQ+ experience - bitter or sweet - which is the first of its kind.
