I encourage you to stop for just a few minutes and watch the captivating 7 minute short film, No Place Like Home by David Velduque, starring Marius Praniauskas.
The official synopsis:
No Place Like Home is the story of Niko, a guy who enjoys his life and his sexuality at it’s full potential.
Suddenly he will have to go back home to his country in eastern Europe to take care of his ill mother.
Nothing is what it seems and soon he will realize what is really going on.
A breathtaking roadtrip about the discrimination and violence against the LGTBIQ community around the world.
As World Pride begins in Madrid, Spain, it’s important to remember LGBTs around the world face terrible violence and discrimination.
