Experiencing Interruptions?

We, Queer Roma: Valencia

Being Roma. Being queer. What is it like to live at the intersection of at least two identities?
How does it feel to be a minority within a minority? “We, Queer Roma” is a search for answers; a film series that focuses on the media representation of LGBTQI Roma. In the first episode, Spanish activists Demetrio Gómez and Rosa María Quiroga Ramírez talk about their challenges, successes and lived experiences in their hometown, Valencia. Through Demetrio’s account, we gain an insight into Valencia Critical Pride. By representing the real voices of local LGBTQI communities, Valencia Critical Pride offers an alternative to commercialized, mainstream Pride events.

Director Biography - László Farkas

László Farkas aka Lazlorrobot is a Hungarian media producer, DJ and Roma LGBTQI activist. Between 2015-2019 he was the main organizer of the Roma LGBTQI floats for Budapest Pride, which has inspired many other important Roma LGBTQI Pride movements in Europe. He is the founder and editor of the Queer Roma intersectional media projects called “QRTV Europa”, "TV Baxtale" and "Radio Shun.es". He gained his experiences in communication, film and media production at one of Hungary’s largest television channels and as the social media team leader of a media agency. Based on his initiative, hashtags and QR codes were tested and used on screen in Hungarian television for the first time. In 2014, he was awarded the Certificate of Appreciation by the Dr. Jozsef Varga Hungarian Rural Talent Encouragement Program as an “exemplary career starter”. Between 2015 and 2017, he was member of the online jury in digital media awards for the leading Hungarian creative communications magazine, Kreativ.hu. László Farkas was nominated for the Hungarian Roma Press Center Prize called “Aranypánt-díj” which is awarded to successful Hungarian Roma youth. In 2018, he was one of the artists of the Roma Biennale in Berlin.
