Campaign idea

In Serbia, LGBT+ members are often publicly shamed by friends, relatives and even their parents. To formalize the rejection, parents used to publish ‘I disown my child’ classified ads in papers. This practice is still happening in some parts of the country. We hijacked this tiny media format and used it as a tool to change the conversation. We published a series of real ‘I (dis)own my child’ classified ads in all national and local newspapers, written by parents who support their LGBT children. I (dis)own became a moto of the community and the theme of Belgrade Pride 2019.
