An eye-opening documentary about the LGBTQ community in Armenia. Following the explosion of the DIY Pub in Yerevan and the attacks on the Diversity Parade, awareness about the LGBT Community has risen and the momentum is building. The critical and aggressive allegations directed towards the LGBT Community “puddled” the individuality of the LGBT members, hindering the possibility of getting to know who these people really are , why they are considered the enemy and towards whom so much extreme hatred is targeted towards. In this film, 10 representatives of the LGBT Community in Yerevan bravely come out of the closet and talk about their experiences in front of the camera.
By talking about their childhood, their existence, their self-recognition, their relationships with their families and by making their voices heard, they are dispelling the myths about the LGBT Community in Armenia and beyond. An empowering film about the current social fabric in Armenia.
