SLOBODAN RANDJELOVIC @ THE CENTER

Srdjan Dimitrijevic and Dalibor Vujovic — Srdjan and Dalibor are domestic partners who recently celebrated their 6th anniversary as a couple. They are frequently called “faggots” when they walk down the street together. They keep their heads down as reacting is dangerous. Dalibor: “When I think of the future, I want to be able to walk on the street and hold his hand without fear of being attacked, either verbally or physically.”

SLOBODAN RANDJELOVIC- LIVES IN TRANSITION: LGBTQ SERBIA
January 23 — February 25, 2019

“Lives in Transition: LGBTQ Serbia by Serbian born photographer Slobodan Randjelović is a powerful portrait of a community battling homophobia and transphobia in Serbia. It is part of the ongoing critically acclaimed series of photobooks published by The New Press with the Arcus Foundation and Emerson, Wajdowicz Studios (EWS) on queer communities around the world. The book captures the struggles and successes of 20 LGBTQ people living throughout Serbia-a conservative, religious country where, despite semi-progressive LGBTQ protection laws, discrimination fueled by religious authorities and right-wing political parties remains deeply entrenched. In a country where lack of employment opportunities and hostile families frequently drive queer people into poverty and isolation, these individuals have struggled to build a community that will offer solace, protection, and even joy.”
