The fifth edition of the Smoqua Queer Festival Rijeka is set to celebrate diversity from October 7-9. Culture, art, and interesting content mixed with the advocation of rights for sexual minorities, citizens and visitors of Rijeka are once again in for a queer culture treat as the fifth edition of the Smoqua festival of queer and feminist culture will take place from October 7-9. ”With our hearts full, we’re announcing the 5th edition of Smoqua that will win you over with its diverse content, inspiring people, and warm atmosphere. LORI, together with our dear partners PaRiter and GSG, invite all persons of goodwill, an open mind and heart to join us in the new edition of joint reflection, conversation, mingling…” says the Facebook description of the event. As in previous years, Smoqua reminds visitors that they are offering a safe space for people that are different. For those that don’t fit into gender and sex norms and boxes, but also those who are in need of open conversations, discussions, gaining new knowledge, and are curious about new realisations.
