The «Thessaloniki International LGBTQ Film Festival» and its parallel events wish to deal with: the interests, needs and desires of gay – lesbian - bisexual – intersexual citizens (women and men), as well as the difficulties these people have to deal with because of a dominant homophobic feeling and an ideological and implemented social (and individually embodied) hostility.
