Kratki dokumentarni film

Kako izgleda kada mladi Kvir ljudi pokrenu posao u Beogradu? Koliko koraka ih deli od same ideje do ostvarenja? Na koliko prepreka naiđu na tom putu i kako se sa njima bore? Šta je uopšte potrebno da se stvori “bezbedno” mesto i mesto koje mnogi od njih smatraju svojom drugom kućom? Kako izgleda njihova borba i da li je i šta sve pandemija promenila, saznaćemo kroz tri unakrsne priče. Upoznaćemo Savu Jokića, gej momka i vlasnika kafića Šupa, Vladicu Čulić, vlasniku “Guvernanta bar-a” i Kristinu Kastelac, vlasnicu tattoo studija “Tetovaži”.
Oni će govoriti o svojim iskustvima, svojoj borbi, svojim željama, ali i svojim osećanjima. Preneće vam svoje emocije, jer pokrenuti kvir biznis ne znači steći samo profit koji, zapravo, često izostane, to znači steći potpuno novu porodicu.
