Artist Vincent Kyabayinze writes of this artwork, “Gangs use social media and other social platforms to pretend to be gay so they can get young gay men to bars, get them drunk and later violate them sexually and beat them to death. This is a warning to use social media responsibly. We must protect ourselves from blackmail and murder.”
