LGBT is a code used by support organizations to signify Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender.
This work deals with people from Eastern countries who left their home because in their societies they cannot live the way they feel. Only in a foreign place and sometimes only on weekends in a club they find conditions that allow them to be who they are.
The 37 pictures of Eastern LGBT were taken in 2004 and 2006 in Zürich, Barcelona, Tel Aviv and London.
