These sweethearts are watching a performance by Olympia Bukkakis.
Olympia is the founder of Queens Against Borders. QAB is a performance party in solidarity with queer and trans refugees.
two cuties are newlyweds!
And here is a member of community just chilling the heck out.
They are relaxing in the safe space that is queer bar and art gallery,
Ludwig Berlin. Opening a radically inclusive, trans, lesbian and nonbinary welcoming, gay art bar in Neukölln has been a challenging journey for Maurus and Ceven, who run the space. I am so grateful the community has stepped up to support Ludwig, a beautiful and warm clubhouse for creative queers and their companions.
Thanks so very much to my Patrons on Patreon, who make it possible for me to make this art and share it open source, licensed with Creative Commons for all to share, print and enjoy.
