This documentary video film is about the 25 anniversary of the lesbian group ŠKUC-LL (1987-2012) and about the lesbian movement in former Yugoslavia. It is a project that visualizes, and define the context for the movement and of the LGBTQ community within and with relation to politics, economics, culture, arts and legal institutional structures; this contextualization works on two layers: first from the decaying socialism to neoliberal capitalism, and then in the time of the 1990s it depicts the transition to a present, bloody neoliberal global capitalism. The video film includes analysis of the movement in the EU after 2004, when Slovenia became a member of EU, and includes discussions and analysis of the “climate” that followed the discussions and the rejection of a new Family code in Slovenia in 2012 (rejected by a referendum in March 2012). A special place is given in the film to the Pride Parades in the ex-Yugoslavian territory.
