LezFem's Diary Favorite 



May 17 2014


Skopje, Macedonia

The current cultural and political context in Macedonia marginalizes lesbians and women in general, and the dominant political party forces the traditional role of the woman, where she is a mother, a housewife, and of course, heterosexual. Furthermore, the major TV stations are flooded with Turkish soap operas, where traditional values are the leitmotif of the show. In this context, LezFem (lesbian and feminist support group from Skopje) infiltrated the mindless world of soap operas, by synchronizing a randomly selected episode, changing the dialogue so that there are lesbian stories instead of the traditional, hetero-normative ones.
