This series consists of portraits of the LGBTQI (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersex) community of Mongolia. For security reasons people cover their faces with the Khadag. This scarf has a long tradition in Mongolian culture - so for example it is used to cover the faces of the dead.
In the last few years, the LGBTQI community implemented a lot of changes: it established the first Queer Film Festival and the first Pride Week. Also the acceptance of the LGBTQI community in the wider society is growing slowly but surely. It is still a long way off being equal, but a lot of people are walking down that path.
