The catalog LGBT History Month. Visual Art was published whit the support of Erste Fundation and contains two contemporary art projects: LGBT Humanity and Inside Insights, inspired by the life of the LGBT community. The two projects analyze Romanian society from an LGBT point of view. Censorship, discrimination, stereotyping, fear, invisibility, lack of recognition are problems that community members face daily. Beyond the negative aspects of reality these projects, show the culture diversity that, despite marginalization, is dynamic and alive.
