World Press Photo of the Year 2015

World Press Photo of the Year [Contemporary Issues , 1st prize singles , Mads Nissen.]

Jon, 21, and Alex, 25 are a couple. Being lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (LGBT) is becoming more and more difficult in Russia.

Although I personally don’t think it’s a great photo, what it stands for with the unfolding story of the rather pathetic Russian stance on gay people, is so important to highlight:
