Hjemkomsten

På bildet kysser Tam sin polyamorøse partner Widad på markedet. Noen er nysgjerrige, andre blir sinte og sier at de kommer til å bli straffet av Gud. Tam sier: «I en perfekt verden burde det ikke være noe problem å vise kjærlighet på gata, men det er det fortsatt. burde ikke være et problem i min ideelle verden, men det er det fortsatt.»

Hele serien kan du se i Oslo på fotofestivalen Oslo Negativ som holder åpent denne helga og to helger framover!
