This will include discussions, seminars, panel presentations, performances, art and photography and films.

We Swedes are looking forward to meeting all of the Belarus colleagues we have been in contact with during the years for discussions and planning!

We invite all Belarus LGBT and straight journalists and Belarus web site creators to join us in these discussions and cultural happenings – and of course hope you will give us positive coverage!
