Dorottya is the coordinator of the Hungarian book project "Fairyland is for Everyone" (Meseország mindenkié), published by Labrisz Lesbian Association in 2020. The volume contains fairy tales by contemporary authors with diverse characters from various marginalized or disadvantaged groups, intended to help parents and teachers discuss sensitive or ‘taboo’ issues with children aged 6-12 years. Since publication in September 2020 the book has sold more than 30,000 copies. See CEU's full story and interview with Dorottya.
