The opening ceremony took place in Kyiv Karas Gallery featuring Naomi Lawrence and in Munich Center for gays “Sub” featuring a representative of the Bavarian capital city council – Lydia Dietrich (Green Party). Two events were connected by video conference, and guests on both sides had an opportunity to be engaged in a lively dialogue during the whole event. Guests of the exhibition in Germany asked Ukrainians many questions, mostly – about the situation in the country.
From 14 till 21 February 2014 within the cooperation of LGBT communities of Kyiv and Munich an exhibition of a German artist Naomi Lawrence entitled “Guys, let’s live friendly!” takes place in the Ukrainian capital. The original title of the exhibition “Gay Propaganda – How gay is Batman?” was adapted to local context using a famous quote from a Soviet cartoon about Cat Leopold. Venue of the exhibition – Karas Gallery.
