Romeo + Juliet stole hearts in 1996, with a Leonardo Dicaprio young man in the role of Romeo. The city of Verona in the film is nothing more, nothing less than CDMX.

El Baile de los 41, a production that premiered on streaming this year, brought to the screen a fact that was rarely talked about in the history of our country, where a group of men lived their sexuality openly in a club.
