Love is Love, 2002

The Love Is Love TV spot was made during the national campaign of the same name, which was carried out in 2002. At the time, the rights of gay people were ignored. The law did not proscribe discrimination based on sexual orientation, and same-sex unions were not legally recognised. This resulted in a greater social vulnerability of gay persons, and put them at greater risk of violence, stigma, discrimination and social isolation. The Croatian Television refused to air the LORI spot judging it inappropriate.

Educational videos on LGBTIQ topics for mental health workers

This series of six educational videos on various LGBTIQ+ topics was created as part of the Erasmus+ project Common Point - Innovative Approaches to Training Mental Health Service Providers for the Quality Support of LGBTQI People. Through these six short videos (10 – 24 minutes in length), it is our intention to improve the knowledge and cultural competences of mental health professionals (school counsellors, crisis hotline operators, social workers, clinical psychologists) on LGBTIQ+ topics. The videos are in English with subtitles available in Croatian, Czech, Hungarian, Bulgarian and English. They cover various topics such as: LGBTIQ terminology and basic concepts, coming out, specific aspects of working with LGBTIQ+ persons for mental health professionals, challenges of being transgender or a gender diverse person, homophobia/biphobia/transphobia/interphobia, LGBTI human rights, violence and discrimination etc.
