MASKED EXCELLENCE: THE DOOMED

Presenting images from Les Condamnés: Dans mon pays, ma sexualité est un crime (The Doomed: In My Country My Sexuality is a Crime), an exhibition about homophobia in the world, organized by Philippe Castetbon. For the project, and as a protest against their countries’ strict, repressive and potentially deadly anti-gay laws, 51 homosexuals from nations ranging from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe, from Liberia to Mozambique to Guyana, Senegal, Egypt, Singapore, Mauritius, among others, photographed themselves in some creative way, faces hidden, then uploaded the shots to wordlwidel gay hookup sites. Opening Thursday, January 28, 2010 at la mairie du 3e arrondissement in Paris.
