Vision

Subversive Front sees the world as a place that offers enough space for the individual to a freer and more critical approach to gender, sexuality, and to any identification with a particular category and norm, as opposed to previous uncritical, blind reliance on existing traditional norms. Subversive Front stands for the right not to identify with the existing norms in the area of gender and sexuality, which are pretty limiting. We see the world as a place where all people regardless of their differences would enjoy all existing rights and freedoms and would have equal status in the society, and thus the possibility of organised political struggle if their rights, freedoms and choices are violated.

Mission

Subversive Front’s mission is to work on promoting of a more critical, unconventional, non-patriarchal approach towards the identification to any existing category in the area of gender and sexuality, and thus to work on recognition, introduction and promotion of the rights and status of people with differences that do not identify with the dominant heteronormative categories in Macedonia, as well as their protection and support by creating strong political movement in Macedonia that would work to create a favourable and acceptable climate for the people with a different approach to gender and sexuality.

Strategic goals

Promotion of a critical, creative, queer, non-patriarchal approach to gender and sexuality through a variety of public, educational, institutional actions and debates that will aim to offer the individual a bigger space for identification or non-identification in terms of gender and sexuality.

Opening a productive, non-homophobic debate on the rights of people who do not identify with the dominant heteronormative values and on the rights of LGBT people.

Working on policies and strategies to create a favourable social and political climate for recognition of the rights and status of people who do not identify with the patriarchal and heteronormative approaches to gender and sexuality, and of the LGBT people.

Motivation and cooperation with relevant stakeholders and institutions to join in the campaign for equal rights and freedoms of people with a different approach to gender and sexuality.

Creating an organic and organised queer and LGBT community that would be motivated to actively participate in the campaign and the fight for equal rights and that would work towards a favourable and freer climate for approach to gender and sexuality.

Education for critical approach to gender and sexuality, as well as education on the rights of LGBT and queer people.
Conducting public campaigns to reduce the dominance of heteronormative, patriarchal views of gender and sexuality, as well as campaigns to develop awareness that would fight against homophobia and heterosexism.
