Queer Festivals face problems and are under constant attack in many countries. Recently, a two day LGBT film festival got banned in Ankara because the festival "could incite grudges and enmity toward a part of society”. In Tunis, the brand new Mawjoudin Queer Film Festival will be launched in January 2018 and it might face challenges too. Gizem Bayiksel and Karam Aouini will talk about their drives and motives, their passion and activism in the debate Queer Festivals under attack.
