At a time of return to moral values led by the governement, institutionalisaton of racism and islamophobia, attack on the youth and working class, as well as disabled people, cuts on public services inluding fund for HIV services, SERTUC LGBT Network is inviting you to discuss how to develop strategies and ways of connecting our work for greater social justice, not only for LGBTIQ individuals but for all.

The photo exhibition will show pictures from LGBT grassroots activism such as early pride events, solidarity actions with other campaigns by photographers Vera Rodriguez and Pam Isherwood.

We will also exhibit the work of the Queer collective “Queer Beograd” about direct action and anti-fascism.
