In cooperation with Koroška Pride.
How to queer the countryside? What makes our daily lives and non-everyday lives diverse and special, depending on where we live? This international edition of Queerever will address the marginalised needs of rural queers at a workshop facilitated by the Koroška Pride. We will be joined by partners from Hungary and Germany who are doing what we do in their rural areas: drawing rainbows over the safer spaces of our villages and towns.
The workshop will compare the realities of being a queer in the rural environment in three different countries with three different political contexts. What are the experiences of LGBTIQ+ activists from the rural areas of Slovenia, Hungary and Germany? What are the challenges and needs of young LGBTIQ+ people? How do the activists create safer spaces? How do they respond to hate speech, fake news, and the anti-LGBTIQ+ rhetoric emerging in their environments? Using creative methods, we will look for similarities, differences, good practices and opportunities for international cooperation.
