Beyond the blue sky


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.
