Slovenská Tepláreň – Series of events in support of the LGBTI+ community

Slovenská Tepláreň – Series of events in support of the LGBTI+ community

The Slovak art scene is reacting to the terrorist act in which Matúš Horváth and Juraj Vankulič were murdered in a hate crime outside the LGBTI+ bar Tepláreň in Bratislava city center. Dozens of performers and bands will come together in clubs all over Slovakia in the middle of November as part of the Slovenská Tepláreň event. The goal of the joint initiative of the Pohoda Festival, Roman Samotný from Tepláreň bar, and other partners is to express solidarity with the bereaved and show support for the LGBTI+ community through concerts dedicated to Matúš and Juraj. The concerts will take place from 12 to 20 November 2022. The organizers also invite other clubs, bars, pubs, or other venues, as well as art projects, to support this initiative. You can apply until next Friday, 28 October at slovenskateplaren@pohodafestival.sk.

The statement of the initiative can be found below, as well as at www.slovenskateplaren.sk. Here you can also find additional information: a map of events, a concert calendar, or an updated list of participating clubs and performers. The Slovenská Tepláreň festival will also host the Tepláreň Nahlas discussion series organized by the artist Ilona Németh, the Visual stage of the Pohoda festival, Nová Cvernovka center, the Academy of Fine Arts and Design, and the Matej Bel Institute. The Tepláreň Nahlas series will continue even after the end of the Slovenská Tepláreň festival.

"We want to express our solidarity with the families and loved ones of Matúš and Juraj, who were murdered in a hate crime in Bratislava's Tepláreň bar.

We want to express our respect and esteem to those who made Tepláreň a welcoming place where free people can meet. 

We want to express our support for the LGBTI+ community.

We want Slovakia to be a country where everyone can feel safe and where minorities are accepted with respect as a natural part of society.

We want to see legislation changed to ensure a dignified and full-fledged life for all people in Slovakia, including the LGBTI+ community.

We want to walk the path of non-violence, togetherness, and tolerance, and that is why we are organizing the Slovenská Tepláreň festival."
