‘Listen To Me’ is a documentary about the LGBT community in Armenia.

In 2012, after the explosion in the DIY bar, and the attacks on the Diversity Parade, discussions about the LGBT Community have seen an increased momentum in Armenia, and continue to do so. The aggressive allegations directed towards the LGBT Community puddled the individuality of the LGBT members, hindering the possibility of getting to know who these people really are, and why they are considered the enemy and shown so much extreme hatred.

In the film, ‘Listen To Me’, 10 representatives of the Armenian LGBT Community agreed to come out of the closet and talk about their experiences in front of the camera.

By telling about their childhood, their existence, their self-recognition, their relationships with their families and by making their voices heard, they are cleaning the bad name society has smeared on those in the LGBT community.
