On September 22 at QueerFest there will be a meeting with Alexander Bard. In Russia, he is famous as a musician and producer (Army of Lovers, Vacuum and Alcazar). He is more famous in the USA and Europe as a philosopher and writer, the author of a trilogy about the Internet-revolution, and as a political activist.

"Mister Putin, I'm going to be straightforward: we will never give up. One cannot stop the fight of human being for love", said Alexander Bard at the opening of gay-pride in Stockholm. Bard comes to St. Petersburg to support the local LGBT community. He will read a lecture about the freedom of information, LGBT rights, and music as a catalyst for social change.

On the night before the lecture, come to a concert by Alexander's new band, Gravitonas. The lecture starts at 12pm. Don't be late.
