Every trans story is a unique, incredibly rich, challenging, and beautiful experience - a journey towards oneself. It's a path that reveals the truth within ourselves and in the environment we live in. With our guests, we will talk about acceptance and rejection, about struggle and surrender, about sorrows and joys, about love and hatred - simply about everything that we, as trans people, encounter in our unusual lives. What brings us joy and what annoys us about life in our country? What would we like to change? Lenka Králová will take you into a world where being trans is not a trap but an opportunity.

In colder weather, we welcome you to our warm embrace filled with humor. During the evening, you can look forward to a group of stand-up comedians called 'Hranice humoru' (The Limits of Humor). They believe that humor should transcend and break all boundaries. This group hails from Brno, and their first performance took place several years ago at our festival! That's why we are delighted to welcome them back in our accompanying program.
Come and join us for a good laugh and enjoy dry humor so sharp that lubricating gels will be available at the entrance! You will hear completely new stand-up routines, see entirely new comedians, and experience the unexperiencable!
