Activists that stand at the frontline of LGBTQ+ activism in Georgia recount their experience during the International Day Against Homophobia, in which they were assaulted by thousands of anti-gay activists, led by the Georgian Orthodox Church. Club Bassiani, and their queer nights Horoom Nights, form their fort of resistance to homophobic violence. For them, nightlife in Georgia is not an escape, but a way to resist. A fight uniting friends and enemies through dance.⁣⁣⁣
