Czech LGBT festival to feature Romani evening
On Friday, 15 August, an evening called "Hot Chocolate" will take place as part of the Prague Pride festival, focusing on the issue of LGBT people in the Romani community. The event will offer an exhibition of photographs, music, a debate, fortune-telling and a counseling center.
An exhibition of photographs created by those who attended the world's first-ever Romani LGBT workshop will be available for viewing. There will also be art photography on the theme of personal identity curated by Lukáš Houdek.
After a reading and film screening there will be a discussion with Kristián Horváth about transsexuality in a Romani family. There will also be fortune-telling, a counseling center, and a beauty corner (with a hair stylist, manicurist and skin care advisor).
The launch of the publication "Hot Chocolate" will also be celebrated. The musical portion of the evening will feature performances by Jan Bendig, Pavlína Matiová, Erika Fečová and Martin Fečo, Pavlína Danková, Jitka Matiová and DJ eMjAy.
