The documentary offers an exceptional look into the lives of gays and lesbians in contemporary Poland. It explores the issues of gay and lesbian rights in a conservative society, which undergoes a dynamic transformation, increasingly permitting successful liberal changes.

The film focuses on the diverse and complex identity struggles involved in the process of ‘coming out.’ It profiles both celebrities who are openly gay in Poland and young people from small towns who are still in the process of ‘coming out.’

Screening followed by discussion panel with prof. Anne White (UCL SSEES) and dr Richard Mole (UCL SSEES).
