Synopsis

This film follows a small group of brave LGBTI+ activists in Tbilisi, Georgia as they attempt to conduct the first Pride march in the country, where homosexuality remains highly stigmatized. They face overwhelming opposition, abuse, intolerance and discrimination from far-right groups, the government and the Georgian Orthodox Church, all of which have a history of inciting violent attacks on the LGBTI+ community. With the country’s hopes for membership in the European Union, and anti-Russian sentiment firmly on the political agenda, Georgians are at a turning point in history where they must choose to fight for progress and human rights, or concede to greater Russian influence. In the midst of this geopolitical turmoil, the committed organizers of Tbilisi Pride boldly strive to be visible in their evolving country.
