WATCH: Queer Russians Brawl With Churchies, Skinheads In “I’ve Only Just Begun”

Well, this is remarkable, even without any context: A bunch of determined queers on a resolute march to St. Petersburg are unafraid to tussle with the creeps who stand in their way. Why? Who? What? How? That’s not entirely clear—but, gosh, it sure is pretty.

According to the opening titles, “I’ve Only Just Begun” is a response to the city’s new gay-propaganda law, which bans the promotion of homosexuality to minors. In protest, activist Venuz Volgar marches to Saint Petersburg to rescue, um, someone. He’s joined by a pack of drag queens, muscle boys and the longest-burning cigarette in history.

Fisticuffs ensue when they encounter homophobes along the way.

Why do we love this so much? Because lately, it seems like queerness has been getting less and less queer; and every now and then it’s nice to be reminded of the thrill of being different. Gay doesn’t have to mean white-picket fences and nuclear families. Although it’s lovely when it does.

      It’s sad that both sides have done exactly what the Abramic God of war and conflict wants, to have us fight. Jesus tried to tell us it was an evil God and love each other regardless. It was the best he could do before he was killed for trying to blow the lid off the entire scam. Best to dismiss asinine rubbish rather than adore it thru engaging in it’s desire for conflict. We’re puppets, body ones.

      @iDavid: yes! Abrahamic religions are cause of homophobia.

      Prophetic, inspiring and revolutionary. History is seldom learned, all too often in humankind it is relived.

      Such beautiful high production quality work.
