Classical in the Hermitage
Classical voice recital with LGBT-related composers & pieces.
We will travel amongst several countries. In Great-Britain finally an apology has been made to the men who have been convicted of homosexuality. In Russia a law has been passed against “gay propaganda”, in Turkey the situation has also deteriorated significantly. America has had a very rough time under Trump, but now has Biden as president who overturned the anti-transgender law. In the Netherlands, we have had the first trans person in our parliament since March, despite the fact that people increasingly say that they cannot walk “hand in hand”. This programme gives an impression of the state of the world in which we live as an LGBTI community.
