IDAHOT Report 2014: Romania



Romanian LGBT organizations commemorated the International Day Against Homophobia & Transphobia 2014, with a video release, a poster campaign and a public meeting on the social rights of LGBTI people

Activists invited community members to a venue where they filmed verbal messages which were cut into a support video for the LGBT community. They also took photos with written messages on posters. All of this served for the main purpose of raising public awareness around LGBT rights through social media, and also getting people together to get to know each other, and to build stronger communities.
You can watch the video activists created (with English subtitles) here:
