Art that can be construed as supporting LGBTQ+ rights
Stephen Lauf

Well, today, another headline from The Arts Newspaper needs addressing (from me)--Fears for artistic expression in Russia as ministry files motion to classify 'the international LGBT public movement' as 'extremist'. First paragraph: "Russia’s ministry of justice announced on 17 November that it had filed a motion with the Supreme Court to declare the LGBTQ “international public movement” as extremist and outlaw it, posing a direct threat to activists and any cultural and visual expressions construable as supporting of LGBTQ rights."

As it turns out, The Timepiece of Humanity, presently on exhibit at GES-2 House of Culture, Moscow, is a cultural expression, of mine, that indeed supports LGBTQ rights, because LGBTQ rights are also my rights.
