Lovespace's It's okay outdoor ad series created with Patsany Agency, Kyiv, Ukraine.
    The series' press release states: "'It's okay' is a new campaign from the space of sexual knowledge and goods Lovespace, which details the topic of sex and sexual fantasies. The campaign says that in society, sex is presented as a very intimate affair, which is not worth talking about once again, but even think. Because of this pressure, sexual fantasies are perceived as something vulgar and dirty, something to be ashamed of. Each photo visualizes how different sexual fantasies can be and that each of them is normal. Patsany selected a shortlist of the best photos and developed a key message for each so that the Lovespace team could use the entire series of posters on social media.
    "Our goal was to develop a beautiful, non-vulgar and at the same time socially important communication that would draw attention to the problem. 'To wish is ok' 'To share what you want is ok' 'To experiment together is ok' 'To try together is ok.'"

    De Standaard's press release states: "After introducing a controversial law that further restricts the freedoms of the LGBTQI community in Hungary, Viktor Orbán - the Hungarian Prime Minister - attempted to buy media space in the European press. But instead of publishing his Eurosceptic ad, we addressed one to him.
    "'Love will not let itself be dictated anymore. The law will no longer define it. We still have freedom of the press, and we will use it.' - Karel Verhoeven, editor-in-chief at De Standaard."
