SCANDAL

Scandal shows an amazing history of how a social and political movement in Albania can start, can move on and get to the heart of the society. The experience of smart and courageous people who started the LGBT movement and of those who found and dedicated their lives to this movement. A tribute to those LGBT people who were persecuted, destroyed and never lived a life under communism and an open call for those who are still afraid.
