Description

Portraits of BIpoc LGBTIQ+ people living in Finland by Aleksandra Lemke.

It has been 50 years since the decriminalisation of homosexuality in Finland and a considerably progress has been made ever since to safeguard and promote LGBTIQ rights in Finland. Despite the important milestones, a lot of work is still required to fully advance the rights of all people within LGBTIQ communities.

About Us is a photo exhibition that aims to empower and increase the representation of LGBTIQ people of colour in Finland. It also challenges the dominant discourse of whiteness in LGBTIQ communities and addresses multiple forms of discrimination in the Finnish society that is not yet fully understood. The exhibition puts limelight on the stories that are part of Finland.
