An integral part of our community empowerment centered activities, and at the same one of the most appreciated ones, are the movie afternoons. Movies with LGBT relevant and related themes, subtitled in Albanian by CEL, are shown at our premises sometimes as often as twice a week. Screenings are always followed by a lively debate about the issues that particular movie dealt with, with special attention paid to introduction of best practices that members of our community could utilize in order to benefit from or avoid when faced with similar situations or issues.
Movie nights also offer a great opportunity to expand our endeavors in the field of advocacy, as quite often community members attend the movie afternoons accompanied by straight friends or family members. Many have become volunteers and supporters of CEL activities.
