We came in contact with Royal in 2017. In that year he had an exhibition in a gallery in Amsterdam. Because of personal reasons he could not come over for the vernissage and missed his first visit to Amsterdam. Royal is a nickname, since being an openly LGBTI activist or artist can be dangerous in Bangladesh.
Royal was invited to show his work at the World Aids Conference in Amsterdam, July 2018. We are happy we could support his trip to Amsterdam. The photography series Gender Diversity can be seen as power point presentation on our website and was shown during the World Aids Conference in The Global Village. The power point contains texts by Royal.
