Conservatism, postcolonial and post-Soviet heritage, and Islamic history - when it comes to discussing the LGBTIQ+ community in Central Asia we often only focus on the challenges that it might face.
While this always remains important, it's also worth taking a look and zooming into the uniqueness of the queer community in the region and the multiple ways it is claiming its space.
How do different journalists and activists develop the community's strength and creative potential? How do they reach out and speak with their audiences? What changes and successes have they already achieved and where are they still struggling?
We will discuss these questions in our next online Kitchen Talk with our guests from the region:
Anatoly Chernoussov, founder of Kok.team, will talk about his experience launching the first LGBTIQ+ mass media outlet in Kazakhstan.
Kamila Rustanbekova, photographer, will present her art project about Uzbekistan's queer space.
Mohira Suyarkulova, scientist and activist, will reflect on her research about happiness inside Kyrgyzstan's LGBTIQ+ community.
Saltanat Shoshanova, manager of n-ost's Unit project, will share working opportunites for journalists and activists in the region.
The discussion will be moderated by Anastasia Anisimova (n-ost).
