Human Library With Queer Books
Ta Politika / Q&A
Human library is an innovative and interactive method of informing and sensitising, a successful instrument in the promotion of human rights. On one hand, members of vulnerable and stigmatized groups – particularly LGBTIQ+ youth engaged, have the opportunity for empowerment, to become active participants in creating more inclusive society that respects the rights of all citizens. By engaging in the dialogue, the visitors – also, mostly youth, are sensitised and informed: personal approach and experience help reconsider their views and strengthen the empathy towards others who are different. The titles are various: Lesbian, Gay, Transgender person, Bisexual person, Asexual person etc. You have 15-20 minuts for reading the books.
