Ukraine is set to host its first-ever queer film festival, Sunny Bunny, this June. Programmer Bohdan Zhuk told Variety that the festival will try to properly represent queer communities in all their diversity, and will also try to reflect ongoing wartime struggles. “It’s essential to talk about queer people in the army. They are out there, fighting. Lately, especially since the start of the invasion, many military volunteers and others [involved in the fight] have been publicly coming out. As queer, gay, bisexual, trans,” he said.  “We want to see a lot of diversity and just… a lot of everything.”
