“I Like Italy But Italy Doesn’t Like Me”

The following video is an artistic submission to the IDAHOT Watchdog, a publication launched in celebration of the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia 2015. The IDAHOT Watchdog is a forum where young people from around the world can share their experiences of being part of the LGBTQI community- both as a celebration and as a call to action against homophobia, transphobia and biphobia.

“Italy seen through my eyes: country of culture and deep traditions. Since all of us wear a mask, we will be recognised
and celebrated for that. But when someone takes off the mask, time and again, his/her own identity means nothing.
This video is a thought on identity which is not heard enough, especially for homosexuals.”
