Ammar (18) is from Tirana, Albania. In May 2021 he ran away from home because his parents don’t accept him being queer. He moved in with a friend. Albanian society is not very tolerant towards LGBTQIA+ people and the LGBTQIA+ community in Tirana is very small and not visible.

I met Ammar a few weeks after he ran away from home. I was impressed by his story and photographed him during the week I spent in Tirana.
