As a poet, writer and performer, Raine Geoghegan sees the Roma cause as a source of creative inspiration and connection with the past.

"My identity as a Romany woman is paramount. As a poet, writer and performer I strive to embody all that I have learned as a child, growing up with strong, independent Romany men and women. Through song, words and right action I embody the Roma cause and thank my ancestors for their wisdom and strength as I make new that which is ancient."

Nagyon megtisztelve érzem magam! Köszönöm az élményt és a lehetőséget a szerkesztőségnek és a stábnak! Örülök, hogy megismerhettem őket!

" Először szerepel oláhcigány asszony a címlapunkon. Hogy miért fontos ez, azt maga Lakatos Mónika fogalmazta meg a legszebben. „Az előítéletek az ismeretlentől való félelemből származnak, talán ez a magazincímlap is segít abban, hogy az emberek nyitottabbak legyenek, és ezzel együtt a különböző kultúrák képviselői közelebb is kerüljenek egymáshoz.” A felkérés meglepte, és – ahogy mondja – zavarba is jött tőle. "

Mónika Lakatos is the first Olah Gypsy woman to appear on the cover of Marie Claire magazine

„This is the first time that an Olah Gypsy woman appears on our cover. Why this is so important was expressed most nicely by Mónika Lakatos herself.

„Prejudice originates from the fear of the unknown, perhaps this magazine cover will also help people become more open and, along with this, bring different cultures closer to each other.

She was surprised by the request and – as she puts it – made feel a bit embarrassed.”

For Jessica Reidy, co-host of Romanistan podcast, the Roma cause is about learning, educating and creating spaces that spotlight the diversity of Roma voices, arts, culture and activism. See below for Jess' story!

"I am mixed, and that is an important part of it. My grandmother is a Sintesa, and because of WWII and her mother’s luck and ability to be able to hide in plain sight in Germany, a privilege most Sinti and Roma did not have, she grew up more assimilated.

She came to the US alone on the arm of a US soldier shortly after the war ended. I was always very close to her, and it was important to her that I learned her family trades, fortune telling and dancing, family stories, and the parts of culture passed down to her in secrecy. She is “proud to be a Gypsy,” and she grieves that fact that she is an outsider, lacking her language and community.

When I started working on a creative writing MFA, my Sinti family’s stories were always high in my throat, but I didn’t feel I had the right to tell them, even though my family encouraged me. When I discovered the anthology, Roads of the Roma, I realized that I wanted to use my privileges-- whiteness, education, a childhood of financial stability-- to spotlight and support Roma and Sinti arts, culture, and activism, and to educate others. I started teaching classes, writing my stories, and being open about why I work as a fortune teller and sometimes dancer. I try to balance my position as an outsider with my Gypsy pride, and sometimes fail.

When my co-host Paulina approached me with her great idea for Romanistan podcast, at first I told her to find someone better-suited, but she wanted a mixed perspective to celebrate Romani and Sinti roots, rebels, and outcasts. As a q***r artist passionate about Romani and Sinti resistance and fringe culture, the podcast represents everything I love."

Isabela, 21, Romania, artist, opera singer, finalist Romania Got Talent 2019

Isabela Stănescu, is 21 years old, she is from Piatra Neamț and dedicates herself entirely to art. She is a great a musician, a student at the National University of Music in Bucharest and she's been making music for 14 years. She wants to become an opera soloist and a successful musician.

In her own words, Isabela shared this:

"What makes me even more special is that I am of Roma ethnicity and come from a family od calderash Roma! Yes Yes! Traditional Roma!

I can say that I was aware of my identity since childhood. I always knew that my origins are more "special", since I first joined school, first grade.

All the teachers were fascinated by this little and hard-working girl, who, however, came from a Roma family (so that you can see what the expectations of people with prejudices are): one, that I was whiter than milk; two, that I was a gifted child and always with enough steps in front of everyone; three, that nothing coincided with what I was and what I was doing with what they thought meant "being Roma."
Anyway, I knew that belonging to my origins is something that makes me special, and I always liked to be different."

Isabela's advice for young Roma feeling ashamed/afraid to publicly embrace their identity is:

"For young people who are ashamed or afraid to assume their ethnic identity, I have the following message: "be the change you want in the world." We have a very difficult job, to replace the wickedness in people's hearts with wisdom and light. It's completely ok to be different, it's HUMAN. Some will look at you with hatred, others with admiration. Take power from people who are proud of you and love you as you are, regardless of ethnicity, color, religion, sexual or political orientation. Don't be afraid to show both majorities and minorities that "it can be done differently" through the power of your own example. This is how you will draw a path for those who want to follow in your footsteps, and little by little, it will be spring, with a flower, and another flower, and another ..."

Renata Mihaly, 21, Romania, artist, painter, fashion designer ⁣

My name is Mihaly Renata, I am 21 years old and I am a student in the second year of college, at the University of Art and Design in Cluj-Napoca, in the fashion-clothing design department. So far, I have achieved the following things, which are very important to me: I had my first personal exhibition in 2020, developed skills in fine arts, I am the author of illustrations for a children's book, I created clothing collections, I participated in international painting exhibitions.⁣
Over the years I've decided to dedicate all my time to my personal development and not only. I have always enjoyed getting involved in activities that leave their marks on education, self-esteem, knowledge and development. ⁣

Although I never hid and I was not ashamed that I am of Roma ethnicity, since kindergarten, in my case, I have received a fair, equal treatment, from all points of view. This is also due to the good education I received from home, where education is at a place of honor on the list of values. I was educated to respect those around me, no matter who they were, and so I was rewarded with the same respect. What I want is for every Roma child to give and receive what they deserve: respect.⁣
We must be proud of what we are and what we have. We have to come out every time we have the opportunity.

The death of a ghost: the Inclusion of Roma people, by Vasile Ionescu "A gypsy can not be a Roma, but perhaps tolerated as a sub-species" (unhuman, man of far away primitive etc.) is - beyond the Nietzschean violence of the formulation - the absence of civic responsibility of the Gypsies, the weakness of the process to become a Roma, made by the founder of the Roma civic movement, activist Nicolae Gheorghe, sociologist and diplomat. Four years ago, on the evening of August 8, 2013, we announced public the physical death of Nicolae Gheorghe, without knowing that it would be the beginning of the chronicle of the deadly agony of an entire nation. And, it seems already certain, that it will survive on its own people, as is the case with great visionaries. Almost unknown in Romania, but very known and appreciated at an international level, he had reformed and revolutionized modern thinking about policies for Roma, Nicolae Gheorghe died after years of oblivion and denial, after, in 2007, both international institutions and financiers and States withdrew its support. Reason: He had become a Moses who had lost his people on the road to freedom and dignity in the Promised Land with milk and honey. After 40 years of activism for human rights, limited in civic bigotry and political correctness he had reached his point of departure, beginning with his courageous dissent and criticism of the racist policies of the Romanian communist system (The Testimony of a Gypsy, 1982) and ending With the radical article on the current post-communist Romanian state in The Guardian (Romania is shirking from its responsibilities to the Roma, 2010). I have not been and I am not an admirer of his dogmatism and strategic instrumentalizations, lost in a post-Kantian idealism of "Deaf Dialogue" and alienation, Marcuse's "freudo-neomarxist revolution", and the return to "open societies" in the Popper-Soros version, as a rupture of form (structure) and substance (content), but - nolens / volens - its failure is an opportunity not to repeat its errors. In fact, he mentions them honestly in a spiritual testament written in his years of self-exclusion, called Rroma - from victimization to emancipation, as working hypotheses if the Roma will do From freedom and dignity the objective of a future strategy to fight against racism: "the common goal of the Roma Movement should be clear: organization, mobilization ... based on continuing the fight against racism." Or, the finding is that there is not at least a minimal definition of the specificity of Romanian racism (derived from slavery and the Holocaust, Romanian biopolitical eugenics centered on "ancestry/blood-relation", as racial superiority, primordialism, exceptionalism, etc.), although Romanians have not invented racism! Another finding is that the Romanian state recognizes the Roma people as a national minority (a co-founding nation of the Romanian state), has created representative institutions (the National Agency for Roma, the National Roma Culture Center, the County Offices for Roma, etc.) Annually the Roma Party (hm!) for the preservation and development of ethnocultural identity (cultural citizenship), the affirmative action in education created a university elite (even if poorly qualified), more than 5,000 Roma are Roma by various institutions The state, etc. Despite this evidence, the issue of the Romanian Roma emigrated through the states of the world not only irritates the state chancelleries but also puts the issue of a specific "reprimitivation" as a recurrence in the medieval past through nomadism, contractility and rejection of sociability, anarchy and non-government, etc. Whose fault? In his Testament, Nicolae Gheorghe identifies a perpetual hypocrisy of the governmental policies of the Romanian state, which implicitly confuses the undifferentiated inclusion of the Roma in social / civic rights with assimilation, acculturation (Romanianization) - which irritates also Romanians and Roma. The other error, tolerated by the state, captive to political clientelism, is the self-sabotage of the Roma by the Roma (Gypsies), by turning the Roma Party into an electoral agency for the majority parties, which led to the creation of false elite, a toady and opportunists tell each other "leaders". As in Budai Deleanu's "Tiganiada" (1800-1812), their descendants do not assume a collective destiny but self-decimate in bowel struggles for individual power; Does not modernize its cultural tradition, but perpetuates gypsy through obsolete and contracultural cultural practices (such as exotism, orientalism, and bohemianism). The will has a slogan: "Revolt and be free! Imagining such a moment, dreaming of him, I would say yes, and I am a Roma, I became a Roma, too! "As Nicolae Gheorghe was not the man of rhetoric, on the contrary, the abnormality of this radical rupture between ideal and real has explanations as far as possible of serious repercussions of the man revolt against its own social inertia, without which no new social contract between the majority population and the Roma would be possible. It is not just the case of Romania, but of Roma from all European countries. As the European Roma population has the size of the population of a medium-sized state and ghettoization can not be a solution, in the new context of the death of relativism and political / political correctness, imposing social responsibility will force the Roma to emerge from the culture of resistance to change (the culture of poverty) and exploitation of alternative survival niches, to begin modernizing lifestyle and cultural and economic practices. Disappointed, the great mass of the Roma preferred to abandon the Roma emancipation movement, but fleeing is just a flee of the freedom, a disillusionment that breaks down the power of a people to normalize their identity. The Rroma ostracism, though unfair, will in principle continue until the Rroma itself assumes the role of social change, in order not to be represented stereotypically by the opportunist elites and by an underground of the old "Gypsy mentality".
