Shrinking space – how to keep on working with Pride festivals and to be an open lgbti-person in Europe today

All over Europe people are faced with new obstacles, new difficulties as organizers of pride festivals or just as lgbtqi-individuals. Parades are not allowed to march, organisations lose their meeting venues and Pride festivals are being attacked. The venues and spaces we have been taking for granted is taken away. What is our response, how do we keep on working with Pride festivals when all this is happening around us, and how do keep on living as lgbtqi-individuals. In this seminar participants from EPOA and Latvia, InterPride, Italy and Hungary will share their experience on organizing Pride festivals and coming out and living in a hostile environment.
