Landecker Fellow Boglarka Fedorko was recently featured in an article celebrating activists in Hungary on humen magazin, the largest LGBT magazine in Hungary. The article, which showcases four Roma LGBT activists, outlines some of their beliefs, activism, and accomplishments in the Roma LGBT community. Boglarka described her work with sex workers in the Roma community and the debate surrounding the morality of sex work. She emphasizes the importance of solidarity and exposure.

Boglarka describes different ways that everybody can help– whether it be through starting the conversation or actively working in the space.
