Lazlo & Dylan Tonk: "The Netherlands is one of the world’s most gay-friendly countries. We are proud to live in a country that values and protects its gay citizens. It is our dream that one day this will be a reality for all nations.
What is happening in Russia today is appalling. Education about sexual diversity is no propaganda. The youth is being deprived of information on sexuality and gay teenagers are silenced. We highly admire the courageous Russian LGBT community and their friends in fighting this injustice.
It is a great honour to be part of the Bok o Bok Film Festival this year. Your festival is a source of hope and inspiration in these challenging times. We are with you in this battle for freedom and equality. Side by side."
