10th Anniversary Invitation of Queer Cyprus & Launch of Diversity of Colours Project
Lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, intersex and beyond (LGBTI+), the Diversity of Colours Project for a Cyprus where all colours can coexist!
You are cordially invited to the exhibition of 10th Anniversary of Queer Cyprus and Launch of Diversity of Colours Project which will be held at European Mediterranean Art Association (EMAA) on Monday 4th March at 19:00. This project is funded by European Union under the “Cypriot Civil Society in Action VI” Grant Scheme and implemented by the Queer Cyprus Association.
The Diversity of Colours Project aims to improve access of LGBTI+’s to human rights and to prevent discrimination in the northern part of Cyprus. The Launch event will be followed by the exhibition of 10th Anniversary of Queer Cyprus and cocktail reception.
The Launch will begin with the opening speech of project coordinator Erman Dolmacı, and will continue with the speech of Queer Cyprus Associations’ founder member and activist Hüseyin Çavuşoğlu which will be followed by the opening speech of Mr. Michael Docherty, the head of EU Programme Support Office. The opening speeches will be translated into Turkish sign language.
The 10th Anniversary exhibition of Queer Cyprus will reflect the progress of the association from the days of the Initiative Against Homophobia (HOKI) which was established on May 17, 2008, the International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia, up until today’s Queer Cyprus Association. This artistic exhibition is being curated by Zehra Sonya, president of EMAA. The exhibition can be visited after the opening speeches and between 16:00 and 20:00 every weekday from March 5, 2019 until March 11, 2019.
We will be glad to have you with us on this important day.
