It began in 1984 and it still goes on today. 35 years of the LGBT movement in Slovenia through the prism of activism and culture.

We begin with the Magnus Gay Culture Festival, which was organised in 1984 in ŠKUC in Ljubljana and which included the LGBT Film Festival—the first LGBT film festival in Europe. In the same year, the so-called “Magnus Section” — the first organised gay movement in the former Yugoslavia and probably in Eastern Europe as well — was established in the context of the ŠKUC-Forum, which brought together various alternative and civil social movements of that time. The first years were characterised by club events (the only of their kind in the former Yugoslavia) and the organisation of events and festivals. The Slovenian LGBT movement became the most progressive movement of that time and is still active today in different forms and organisations.

“During the entire creative process, it was very important to me that the film is not reduced to a political pamphlet of the movement itself, but that it is placed within the wider social context. I was interested in two aspects: how the Slovenian LGBT movement developed under various types of pressure from various parts of society and how the activism and culture of the LGBT movement influenced the development of the LGBT community and the wider social sphere.”
