Lives in Transition: LGBTQ Serbia by Serbian born photographer Slobodan Randjelovic is a powerful portrait of a community battling homophobia and transphobia in Serbia. It is part of the ongoing critically acclaimed series of photobooks published by The New Press with the Arcus Foundation on queer communities around the world.
The book captures the struggles and successes of sixteen LGBTQ people living throughout Serbia — a conservative, religious country where, despite semi-progressive LGBTQ protection laws, homophobia fueled by religious authorities and right-wing political parties remains deeply entrenched. In a country where lack of employment opportunities and hostile families frequently drive queer people into poverty and isolation, these individuals have struggled to build a community that will offer solace, protection, and even joy.
