Exhibition called "Gays, don't touch the Roma flag!" opens for Prague Pride
On Friday 11 August at 20:00 a vernissage for the exhibition entitled "Gays, don't touch the Roma flag!" ("Teplí, na romskou vlajku nesahat!") was held as part of the Prague Pride festival in the Phundrado Vudar Gallery. The ARA ART organization used the opportunity to respond to the homophobic posts that began to appear in the Czech-language online social media after a photograph was posted of Romani gays and lesbians holding the Romani flag.
News server Romea.cz broadcast the vernissage live on Facebook. This article includes a recording of the event.
