The new community café Patra opened on August 8, 2017. It will offer not only pleasant service, excellent coffee, a selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks and vegetarian refreshments, but also cultural events, screenings, exhibitions, and lectures. The multi-purpose function-room above the café will give you a chance to regularly meet the festival team and numerous other interesting personalities.
Are all lesbians on film dangerous and bloodthirsty? What is the difference between bisexuality and pansexuality? How heated is the discussion on LGBTQ+ in Africa, actually? All of your questions will be answered as part of a discussion series brought to you by Mezipatra during the Prague Pride. Each discussion starts at 7:00 pm and is in Czech only. Followed by English friendly screenings, starting 8:30 pm every day from August 8–11. You can find us in the Kampus Hybernská space at Hybernská 4, and naturally on Grindr or Tinder as well. Free admission to all events.
