Presentation of the project :
The project includes the posting of a set of educational, cultural and entertaining videos on social networks. The content of these videos will be linked to themes and taboos on sexual orientation and gender identity. Although they have been important in personal life since childhood, they are not desirable for discussion or debate in our society.
The videos will be mainly produced by graphic animation, which can be in the form of 2D text animation, or it can be produced by other animation tools such as the "Stop-motion" technique through educational and entertainment methods in Tunisian dialect. The objective of this project (especially during this closed period) is to raise awareness to eliminate hatred of others and themselves.
