Privately Gay

Having been on the road for a month-and-half now, it’s time to share few of the things I had been working on.

The infamous Russian anti-gay bill has been a subject of much discussion since it was signed into law in June this year. The controversial rule apparently introduced as a procotion against pedophilia bans the ‘propaganda of nontraditional sexual relations to minors’. In practice, this means that any homosexual couple displaying signs of affection in public is breaking the law and risking being arrested, thus the project Privately Gay (working title) was born:

PrivatelyGay-1

PrivatelyGay-2

This is a work in progress and I plan to continue photographing same-sax couples in Russia on my return. If you or anyone you know would like to take part, please get in touch.
