    hmmm not to knock it down, but I thought it was a chick and dude at first glance ... it seems a bit dark and gloomy ... Perhaps it exemplifies homosexuality in Russia ... a bit hidden, sad and a bit painful .... I search on his name and there seem to be quite a few gloomy images

    LOVE the twink shaming! He's 21, they look like that quite often (okay, I thought it was a woman at first glance too).

    This is the last picture in a series on homophobia in Russia. The photographer decided he needed some love / intimacy since that's the whole point, right? The right to love. He went to a gay bar and asked around if anyone would let him photograph them having sex. These two are ex-boyfriends that still meet and have sex sometimes.

    Mads Nissen decided to do the series because of a gay, Russian friend that had the snot beat out of him.
