PRIDE & FREEDOM: A portrait series
We want to break free!

Equality may have come a long way, but there are still over 70 countries in the world where being gay is a crime. In many places, the LGTBQI+ people face bullying, violence, prison sentences or worse. By bringing the happiness and Pride colors to a historic solitary confinement cell at Hotel Katajanokka, we want to remind everyone that even though we get to celebrate love and diversity as part of our culture here in Finland, not everyone is free to do so.
It gets better, but not without a fight. Love is love.
Pride & Freedom is an ongoing series. If you'd like to participate, please contact me via email For a list of LGTBQI+ charity organizations you can donate to, visit this Wikipedia page.
