In the summer of 2005, two guys came up with an idea to organize an unprecedented event: a festive lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender peopleâ€™s parade through the streets of Riga, the capital of Latvia. Little did they know that their good intention would spiral into a chain of inconceivable events lasting several years; great emotions would be stirred up and dramatically split Latvian society, the people involved would be showered, in turn, with human excrement and holy water, families would be torn apart, jobs lost, and a priest expelled from the church for free thinking. In the end, could it be that the victims of this hostility were all those involved, because for someone, somewhere it was beneficial to set us against one another?
