Nazik Armenakyan’s “The stamp of loneliness” - book launch and multimedia exhibit on life of Armenia trans people

Great report from Yerevan - by CivilNet (AM) - of unique book launch and multimedia exhibit by Nazik Armenakyan reflecting life of Armenian trans people - “The stamp of loneliness”.

Over years, Nazik has been working on LGBT art/photography/multimedia project (see also previous posts on this blog), focusing mainly on transgender and transvestite sex workers.

What makes Nazik’s works outstanding is that she avoids sensationalism, focusing on people, on their stories, an insight she gained access to by the trust of very individuals she portraits.

Many thanks to Nazik for her work, especially considering Armenian realities and circumstances. It’s very telling re the latter that the launch was not public and by private invitations only.
