The country of Norway this week confirmed that LGBT+ refugees, both groups and individuals, will be given priority when transferring from one asylum country to another for permanent resettlement.
Under previous guidelines, vulnerable women and children were given priority.
‘We are now changing the guidelines for the work of transfer refugees so that [LGBT] person … should be given priority.’
Still in almost 70 countries across the globe homosexuality is considered a criminal criminal offense where you can be imprisoned, tortured, and killed for who they are and who they love.
Norway was ranked fifth for LGBT human rights by ILGA-Europe say the move is to not only to protect the LGBT community in Norway but also to recognize that refugees may need to flee persecution due to their sexual orientation.
Boys Town Studios is already in post-production of his first title, Deep in the Dark and has moved ontotheir aptly named second title, Put It In Putin a Vladimir Putin parody,
Explains Kulich to AVN
“Put it in Putin is exactly what it sounds like. The synopsis is Putin grows up behind the red curtain and has to spend his whole childhood hiding who he really is. As he slowly climbs the ranks in the Russian military, he meets a Lieutenant in the Red Army named Alexander. They become best friends and once Putin is thrust into power, Alexander becomes his personal bodyguard. One day while both men are riding through Siberia on horseback, Alexander finally makes his move and the rest is history.”
“We are really excited to get rolling on this movie. This one is going to be a love story for the ages. It’s like Brokeback Mountain meets Communism.”
Personally I think Put It In Putin should have been a gangbang movie with a Vladamir look-a-like tied to an oversize lazy susan in a gulag. But you know, some people want a story-line.
Boys Town Studios is hoping for a mid-November release date for Put it in Putin and iscurrently developing its website and VOD platform at www.BoysTownStudios.com
