Lara Özlen

I romantically choose to study Film and TV, but realize how much I love academic and fiction writing. I applied to an MA program while trying to survive in part time, project-based jobs in film sets, and in multiple NGOs on migration and LGBTI+ rights. I graduated in Cultural Studies, where I worked on queer theory, and lesbian-bisexual socialization’s routines through bars and dating applications and their possible relation to solidarity practices in 2017. My research interests include queer, gender, memory, and film studies. I still continue doing part-time activism in LGBTI+ circles, try to get together with friends, have discussions about saving the world. Additionally, I work my brains off in multiple non-profit organizations on freedom of (artistic) expression.
