Looking for queer activists from Hungary for a common project
Posted October 9th, 2012 - 3:08 pm by from Vienna, Austria (Permalink)
Hey folks,

I am looking for queer activists, who are familiar with the recent matters and evetns of the LGBT scene in Hungary (e.g. who orhanized the Budapest Pride?).
I am a queer activist from Russia/Germany myself, now living in Vienna and planning an event about "Queer and Eastern Europe" taking place in Vienna at some time in November/December. Here are some friends of mine also involved in the project --> you can find their profiles here http://www.couchsurfing.org/people/an.na14/
http://www.couchsurfing.org/people/lscha.katzmann/

We are in the very first phase of planning and had the idea to organize a workshop about queer activism in Hungary since this is the neighbour conutry of Austria. So far the main idea is about how queer activism and a queer scene develops under certain political conditions and pressure (like the extreme example "Pussy Riot" from Russia).
As far as formalities are concerned: we could pay your travel expenses and maybe an agreed fee.


If you are interested in participating in our project or in case you know someone who mght be interested or if you have any questions : please just leave me a message. We could develop some ideas together (:
You could also just mail me a list of queer organizations from Hungary or give me some advice- in any case it will be very appriciated!

Thank you!
The Mash
