If scars are sexy, Minsk must be the sexiest city in the world... Strip clubs, underground raves and gay pride parades pulse beneath the surface of a city where sexuality is twisted by oppression. A love letter to a home that exiles those willing to fight for it, Minsk, 2011 celebrates and mourns a land that has lost its way.
