I can’t remember when I started having breakfasts with my father. But it’s always on Tuesday at 9. We have had probably more than 500 breakfasts till today. Since my mother came back to Croatia, I have lunch with her on Sundays. My brother sometimes joins us.

Family Meals

Mostly we talk about daily politics, films we’ve seen, house investments or we discuss “events” in broader family or among friends. One day I decided to ask questions about the things that affect us. That affect us so deep that it is very hard to talk about them. I told my parents I was gay almost 10 years ago. No one said a word. No rejection, but no support either. When my brother got very sick I didn’t want to help since no one helped me when I needed it. Neither I wanted to invite my parents to my diploma ceremony since I thought they hadn’t deserved it. My mother had a very intriguing life. She made choices no one in the family or friends approved. She left my father for a jobless self-taught artist, a very romantic and very unreliable one. A barbarian, everyone said. My father is involved in a weekend marriage with a woman called Zlata. That’s his own genius invention, he says – going to her place on Fridays and coming back on Mondays. That’s how they never get bored of each other. With the unusual choices they made, I thought their support for me being slightly different should be greater than they showed. But on the other hand, where was I when my brother needed help? And don’t I object to my father’s not earning more money and to my mother’s loving the wrong man? In a series of breakfasts and lunches we talk and we talk. My father thinks it’s good since he knows nothing about his parents as he never dared to ask. My mother says it’s important to clear the dirt from our blood vessels. Told with lot of humour and sincerity, served with excellent food and spiced with love, Family Meals speak about acceptance.
