On July 12, 2013, at 17:00, at the Cultural Center named after J. Kennedy, located at the U.S. Embassy in Kiev, the Awarding Ceremony of the LGBT photographs contest "The Constitution of Ukraine: civil rights are my rights" is being held.
During the event works will be exhibited and LGBT photo contest winners will be rewarded. Welcoming speeches will be made by LGBT community activists and leading representatives of photography art. Ambassador of the USA to Ukraine, Mr. Francis John Tefft, will open the ceremony.
The National LGBT photo contest "The Constitution of Ukraine: civil rights are my rights" was held throughout Ukraine and timed to the Constitution Day of Ukraine.
The main objective of the competition is to attract attention of both LGBT community and their opponents: the constitution guarantees human rights including the right to peaceful assembly, privacy, prohibition of discrimination on any grounds.
During the event, about 40 photographs will be presented in which the authors try to depict the equality of all citizens in Ukraine and inviolability of their rights. The works exhibition will take place for just one day!
This is your chance to take part in a unique cultural LGBT event. Do not miss it!
