Recently, I watched the movie “Viharsarok” (Land of Storms) by Ádám Császi. This little gem shines for two particular reasons: a beautiful script that explores the consequences of a gay romance in a rural region of Hungary, and the outstanding performances of the three main actors – András Sütö, Sebastian Urzendowsky and Ádám Varga-.
The fact that the story is mainly located in Hungary rapidly grabbed my attention, as I know little about LGBT’s rights in this part of Europe. Indeed, this left me wondering how the situation of LGBT people currently is in different parts of the World.
I am originally from Spain (a country known to be one of the most LGBT tolerant places in Europe – if not in the planet – ), and so I live inside a bubble of open-mindedness that does not correspond to the vast reality.
Therefore, I’d like to know more about the rights of lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transsexuals in other countries. In particular, I am curious to know how living as a LGBT person feels like in other parts of the world. That’s why I’d like to start a series of video interviews with people who want to tell me their experiences in their countries… If you fancy having a chat with me, do not hesitate and drop me a line!
