This documentary video film made by Marina Gržinić, Aina Šmid, Zvonka T Simčič is about the 25th anniversary of the lesbian group ŠKUC-LL(1987-2012) and about the lesbian movement in former Yugoslavia. It is a project that visualizes, and defines the context for the movement and of the LGBTQ community related to politics, economics, culture, arts and legal institutional structures; this contextualization works on two time-layers: first from the decaying socialism to neoliberal capitalism, second in the time of the 1990s. It depicts the transition to neoliberal global capitalism. The video film includes an analysis of the movement in the EU after 2004, when Slovenia became a member of EU as well as an analysis of the “climate” that followed the discussions and rejection of a new family code in Slovenia in 2012. The family code was rejected by a referendum in March 2012, the majority decided negatively on basic human rights for same sex unions and their children. A special place is given to the Pride Parades in the ex-Yugoslavian territory.
