Stories…. Are one of the most important parts of us, human beings. Through stories we can build and understand our history. Through stories we can teach, learn and gain a better sense of what shaped us as individuals and the people around us. On this premise and since we COMMA, strongly believe in equal rights and chances for everyone, regardless of their origin, race, sex, gender, sexual orientation… and the list could go on, we gladly agreed to organize an event during Pride week in Cluj.
Communication is a key element in achieving any kind of change. Therefore, this event saw people from the LGBTQ+ community sharing their stories and experiences. The participants listened with great empathy, asked questions and were curious about the 9 wonderful speakers' journeys through life. We had small groups of 2-3 attendants and every 5 minutes, the speakers moved to another group. In this format, everyone had the chance to interact with all our speakers and a safe environment to share.
Seeing everyone smiling, talking, asking questions, the room filled with voices, the level of engagement and positive energy was amazing! This was a PRIDE proud event! Thanks to everyone who participated, special thanks to our speakers and to our COMMA volunteers. You all made this event a success!
