You Can’t Escape Lithuania, Gay Essential Talks To Romas Zabarauskas

Romas Zabarauskas wanted to make an apolitical queer film that takes place in a country that is discriminatory towards gay people. In Lithuania, there are laws prohibiting same-sex marriage and partnerships and there’s strict legislation towards the trans community, preventing them from identifying with their desired sex. But artists like Zabarauskas are determined to rebel against this discrimination by crafting films, books, plays, music, etc. that pertain to the queer experience.
