Video blogger and an open gay man Dima Mishka will talk about how to create LGBT+ content on YouTube. The owner of a YouTube channel himself, which has more than 25,000 subscribers, will share his experience and present a documentary he’s starred in.
«The workshop participants will learn the peculiarities of making LGBT+ content in Russia, the difficulties one might face with having an LGBT-themed blog, and the ways of overcoming them. In addition, I’ll share the practices used by ‘Dima Mishka’ creators, which help promote LGBT+ content», — explained the blogger.
Dima Mishka promises to answer all questions and present a short film called «Your Fear, Your Love», directed by Aleksei Ivanchenkov (premiered in 2019). Dima played the leading role in this gay drama that is dedicated to various problems pertinent to the Russian LGBT+ community.
Dima Mishka’s Youtube channel has accumulated more than two million views. His videos tackle serious topics (AIDS, sex, homophobia) as well as detail his travels. There’s also a place for funny, entertaining videos. Dima hopes the event will help those producing and promoting LGBT+ themed content.
