Время рассказать о сайте своим знакомым. Очень скоро будут опубликованы все имеющиеся фото и видео, отснятые во время пятницы, 3 сентября.
Today, right after the City Garden event, me my girlfriend and Sasha Vitkovskiy headed to the nearest café in order to drink something, all of a sudden my cell phone rang. It was Mr Sokol (the rektor of the Odessa State Music Academy):"Stas, hi. You see, you've been taking pictures of me and you today saying it wal all about HIV/AIDS awareness. Now, somebody just told me this was about some gay demonstation. Is that true?"
Although, usually in such cas people just write no comments, I would so much like to make a comment...
Of course, I told Mr Sokol immediately that all he was told was a lie and everything I were doing today had nothing to do with such nonsense.
And so, I'd like to make an official statement:
Freddie For A Day has got nothing to do with any gay demonstrations, and also doesn't have any political implication.
In order to find answers to other questions I was asked please see the "Questions and answers" section.
So... Freddie For A Day 2010 finished. There's quite a lot of impressions left, which (I guess) aren't only limited to those who actually took part. During the day 'Freddie' managed to visit a lot of public places of Odessa, and the culmination probably became the unexpected acoustic performance of "Love Of My Life" in the Odessa City Garden, next to the Utyosov memorial at 7.30 pm. During the day a total sum of 70 Ukrainian Grivnas was gathered (approximately £5) to donate to the Mercury Phoenix Trust. Yeah, it doesn't seem to be a lot. But... maybe this day could be a start of something big.
Really soon you will be able to see here everything I promised - pictures and videos revealing the highlights of the day.

On the 5th of September 1946 in Zanzibar was born Farrokh Bulsara who later became one of the most worldwide recognized rock-legend and also known as Freddie Mercury.
It'd be so great if he'd been alive and we just could go and tell him: "Happy birthday, Freddie!"
