On 20th of January Ana and Arancha held lecture for Moldovan ten-graders of a lyceum. This time’s Youth club addressed the topic discrimination on the example of LGBT persons. The main goal of the session was, to enable the youngsters to learn about different forms of discrimination, to identify them in everyday-life and to fight against them in order to build up a more equal society.
In order to make them experience what discrimination might feel like and what consequences being discriminated against might have for the victims, the facilitators screened a film which showed the scenarion of a world in which being gay would be the norm and being straight the exceptions. Due to this switch the youngsters could easily relate. After the screening followed a discussion about discrimination in genaral and about how it can be avoided. Furthermore they learned, how to be more conscious in their daily live.
