This is the first picture of a person with learning disabilities (that I know of) on this blog. All people should be able to make decisions about whether or not they participate in sexual things. Developmentally disabled people are no exception.
Awesome picture! Don’t think I have ever seen it before, do you know where it’s from?
This is the story and campaign the picture comes from.
Black Russians is a feature length documentary that investigates the lives of contemporary Afro-Russians aged 10 to 65, born and raised in Soviet Russia. Their experiences chronicle two ideological currents that have shaped major international events in the twentieth century: race and communism. Intimate interviews with a poet, a film producer, a reggae artist, a businessman and others, all Black and all Russian, guide us through this story of promise and non-discrimination. Archive images reveal rarely seen footage of Black political leaders in the Soviet Union, like Paul Robeson, Kwame Nkrumah and Angela Davis. More than a decade after the ‘fall of communism’ a new Russia struggles to steady itself in the wave of nationalism from within and the pressures of global capitalism from without. Black Russians constructs a deeply personal account of the effects of political issues such as migration, identity and loss on a minority community in the vast remains of the Soviet Union
