About the ongoing process of gentrification and the loss of free spaces for diverse and non mainstream ways of living, with a special focus on the struggle against forced gender stereotypes.
* Does communication between the parallel worlds of mainstream and alternative cultures make sense?
* Or have these two worlds so different interests, function in such different systems, that one of them will always be a threat for the other and the only option is a permanent struggle?
* What would be the price for assimilating into the system?
