Welcome to the gay exhibition

In four cities of Ukraine – Odesa, Lviv, Zhytomyr and Kryvyi Rih – opened art exhibitions of works by participants of the Photo Contest “Cumshot: Human Rights!”

The exhibition presents photographs in different styles, united by one common theme – the basic human rights.

Holding the Photo Contest is a part of the program by NGO “Gay Liberation Front” to increase the level of legal culture among the people of our country. It is being implemented within the project “Promotion of basic human rights and freedoms and countering homophobia through increasing public awareness” under the support of the Embassy of the Netherlands in Ukraine and designed to attract the attention to the problem of human rights violations of both public and authorities, as well as to become a platform for a creative expression and talent search.
