Homopromo was established by James Kemp in 2014 in response to Russian anti gay laws, which prohibited the “promotion of homosexuality”, a draconian measure used by conservative politicians to gain popularity with far right groups emboldening those who wished to persecute LGBTQ+ in Russia.

The mission was simple, if Russia wouldn’t ‘promote’ homosexuality then we would through a positive protest that filled the world with more glorious gay art, highlighting injustice and foregrounding the issue whilst raising money for gay rights charities

Homopromo has continued to spread a message of love and tolerance, broadening our remit in successive exhibitions to include a wide variety of LGBTQ+ issues.  We are an inclusive organisation and welcome anyone who wishes to collaborate in our quest for a global society free from homophobia and persecution of LGBTQ+ people.
