Putin Talks about Homosexuality

After visiting Muholi’s work at the Open Eye gallery I was intrigued as to how homosexuality (a various other sexualities) were perceived throughout the world. It’s becoming almost a social norm within the UK and United States lately, after the legal marriage vote last year and the celebrations that followed. However, it’s clear that it’s still not socially accepted to a high degree within countries around us, as Putin says in this interview –  there is still criminal liability for homosexuality is 70 countries, and in 7 of those countries they have the death penalty. This really highlights what people find acceptable and how much the world differs even today.

I think I’d like to explore different countries stances on sexuality, gender and other equality issues within the world in future projects, as it has sparked an interest controversy with me.
