Hadi Damien was arrested in the middle of Beirut Pride 2018 and placed in custody following the homophobic fabrication of a fake, sensational TV programme that was attributed to Beirut Pride. He was released after the suspension of the scheduled activities, and the initiation of criminal proceedings against him, relating to the organisation of events that incite debauchery. He will share candidly his reflections on LGBTIQ+ matters and the meaning of Prides, as well as discussing ways to advance so-called LGBTIQ+ rights in Lebanon - a global conversation springing from his personal contribution and experience.
