The visibility and role of LGBTQIA+ people in Vienna life has increased massively in the past 20 years. 10% of visitors to the city now identify as queer, and this is symbolised in the Ampelpärchen crossings all over the city. We will explore and celebrate the role and contribution of gay people to the cultural, political and business life of Vienna. We will recognise their bravery, and the right to individuality and dignity, but also see the struggles they have been through, to live and love the way they want to. And this is an opportunity also to see the diversity inside the scene, from clubs to food, fashion to media. This tour is about respect and learning, but also dialogue and joy. How have laws changed, where are the tensions right now, why do people react so strongly to trans-rights, and what are the inside details more of us should know. What do those eight digits, LGBTQIA+ mean? Presented by a queer girl and straight-ish boy. #conchita
