This year there were six winners of the festival, two in the female category, two in the male interpreter and two in unpublished song. Alejandro Arteaga Gil, eighth semester Psychology student, was the first place in male interpreter, in female interpreter the winner was Ana Cristina Zapata Tuberquia, seventh semester Physiotherapy student; Finally, the winner of the unpublished song went to Felipe Marín Botero, a psychology student.
“I felt very good, it was a very cathartic thing for me, because it is a song that I found at a very hard time in my life and it became a reference for me as in singing about freedom and being different and embracing that difference. ” , Stated Alejandro Arteaga Gil, first place male interpreter.
The CES University supports the difference and for this reason the first discussion on sexual diversity was also held, attended by 15 participants who learned about gender, the inclusion of the acronym LGBTIHQ and the difference between the words gender and sex.
"These topical issues should be dealt with in a country so marked by very strong traditions at a conservative level where discrimination is seen and where the suicide rate is mostly due to gender-based violence," says Sergio Alejandro Amórtegui Gonzalez, psychology student.
This Wednesday, October 10, the Timbiquí Heritage concert will be part of the University Conference, which will be held at the Guillermo Cárdenas Jaramillo Theater. The entrance is with a ticket and with the CES University card
