Gianni Jovanovic is 42 years old and the son of a Roma family. As a child he experienced discrimination and marginalisation. As a teenager Gianni was married off by his parents. A little later he became a father twice. In his mid-20s, he came out as homosexual to his wife and family. He has now been happily married to a man for many years and has good contact with his children and grandchildren. Gianni Jovanovic cannot be pigeonholed. He is a college graduate, entrepreneur, activist and performer. For several years he has been committed to the rights of Roma and Sinti. In 2015 he founded the initiative ‘Queer Roma’ among other initiatives and he campaigns for LGBTQ+ people who have been discriminated against in his community. Gianni fights for the right to self-determination and for more visibility for minorities within a minority. In 2020, he decided to call his collective ‘Colors of Change’. His goal is also to give people of colour and black people more space in the LGBTQ+ community as racism is also a big problem in the Queer community. Based on his own experiences, Gianni Jovanovic uses various workshop concepts to raise awareness of topics such as racism, discrimination and intersectionality.
