Russia. 2014. This photo of two girls I took during the pride in St. Petersburg. It was the day when everybody could just walk along the main St.P street with the flags they wanted - there were Vegans, Kommunists, Nationalists, Feminists... and there was the LGBT-community with their own little "pride". It was the day of happiness - they came out that day. I am straight but I was with them that day, supporting, 'cause their rights here in Russia are in danger. Every day. These girls look as if they protect each other, as if they are so happy about being here with all these smiling people. There were about 300 of us - this is a lot! I was as happy walking with them as they look on this picture. We don't see their faces, but they are smiling, I know that.
