Babi Badalov is not just 'a gay asylum seeker' but an artist. And we need artists!
The UK has a very long tradition of accepting artists as refugees and Babi is just the latest. Babi's part of the world (the Caucasus) has a long tradition of queers as artists and it is a crying shame that they become persecuted - but it is the UK's gain and we should see it that way, not as a burden.
Here's some of Babi's work, I love it!
