CONDOMS FOR THE POPE
(Slovenia/ 2009/ 8 min)
Roman Kuhar

On his trip to Africa in March 2009, the Pope claimed that condoms are not the solution for AIDS – rather, they are part of the problem. The Slovenian GLBT community organized an inspired protest called ‘Condom for the Pope’ as a reaction to this absurdity. They wrote messages for the Pope on condoms filled with helium, and let them off in front of Ljubljana’s Cathedral on Easter Sunday. They hoped the wind would carry them all the way to the Vatican.
