My friend Alexander Kargaltsev has recently made headlines with this image above that was taken as a protest against Russia’s ‘racism and homophobia’.
I wrote about him and his exhibition about Russian gay asylum seekers in the US more than a year ago, and now he’s staging a new exhibition – “The Last Polaroids: Friends and Lovers” set to open at the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art in New York on February 28.
Be sure to expect some friendly and lovely nudity, of course.
Alexander is also set for a new play, Crematorium:
Putin builds a Crematory in Russia to burn gays. Four couples are picked to test a new machine to turn them straight.
Get tickets here.
