In Hungary, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) people and issues they face are shrouded in invisibility. The oppression and discrimination this community faces, both on structural and everyday level, can, in part, be traced back to this lack of visibility. The goal of the project is to hold a Coming Out Day event series in Budapest and with help of other organizations in several other cities in order to increase the visibility of the LGBTQ community in Hungary, as well as raise awareness among members of the mainstream society and empower LGBTQ people to come out to their families, friends, and colleagues. Our video campaign, workshops, community events, and pamphlets will spread the message of importance of living a more open life as an LGBTQ person. The project is part of an attempt to create a safe social and political environment in which LGBTQ people can live their lives freely and fully, without pressures of structural and everyday discrimination.
The project was successfully closed on January 20, 2014.
