"Ruby und Charlie" fotografiert von Esra Rotthoff

I know, a miracle will happen some day …

The words to this song, made famous by Zarah Leander in a German perseverance film during World War II, were written by Bruno Balz in his prison cell after being arrested for his homosexuality. Its ambivalent message speaks of hidden protest, as does the photo Ruby and Charlie by Esra Rotthoff. Today, in an increasingly right-wing political climate, we need to give a strong voice to those who face discrimination. Let’s not wait for a miracle but stand up for democracy, tolerance and diversity.
