Here I am, talking about what Russia means to me. Please share if you can!

Six Love Letters to Russia — Lucia

7 02 2014

My friend and super smart, artistic, creative, brilliant writer Chris Gatchalian, put together a video project featuring six Vancouver writers and artists who wrote love letters to Russia in response to all the gay stuff that’s been happening over there. I was delighted and honoured when he invited me to be a part of the project, as this issue had been on my mind for a while and I didn’t know what I could do about it. Writing and reading a love letter to Russia seemed like a good, creative way to make a statement.

The first video was uploaded today and features playwright Lucia Frangione recalling her visits to Russia. It’s so well-written and measured — I really, really enjoy it.

My video will be up in a few days. Stay tuned for that. In the meantime, share this video!
