The premiere of the ballet “Nureyev” in the Bolshoi Theater (Moscow) has been canceled by the authorities – because of “gay provocation.” This decision is unfortunate for art, for gays, and for the general public.

Nureyev was one of the most liberated people on the planet. And one of the most talented. He was gay, and in certain periods of his life – bisexual.

Here are some photos of this bright dancer and man.
