We are few years back in time, when Prague’s first LGBT Workshop is getting organized by the Czech ARA ART. It was the first ever organized LGBT Roma meeting in history. At the end of a more-day gathering, the lecturer, David Tiser arranged a joint evening to visit one of Prague’s most famous gayclubs. Everybody is looking forward to it, for some of the participants it is supposed to be the first visit to the gayclub in life. No one expects an inconvenient problem at the entrance … Can the situation be solved so the whole group does not have the miss the spoiled experience after the intensive stay in the capital? How could these situations be avoided? Is it normal that a minority struggling with the exclusion of another minority? These and other questions are addressed on stage in S(u)PERMAX.
