Pawel and Karol

Pawel and Karol
Brooklyn, NY
October 2008

I had two house guests this week, Pawel and Karol, making their first trip to New York City from Warsaw, Poland. They are in town sharing their publication, DIK Fagazine, at The NY Art Book Fair. DIK Fagazine is "the first and the only magazine from Central and Eastern Europe concentrated on homosexuality and masculinity," and I have learned a bit from these two smart and lovely men about how much harder it is to be openly gay in Poland and about the necessity of creating a stronger and more visible community.
