Like many a hospitality business, Los Angeles’ iconic LGBTQI+ bar, Akbar, has been gravely affected by Covid-19.

In an effort to save the bar from closure, Paul Mpagi Sepuya is selling US$250 photographic prints of his Drop Scene Study work to top up Akbar’s Go Fund Me initiative.

“The spirit of this print edition is that of a gift to say thank you to donors, to encourage giving and, for me, as a way to give back to the community that has formed through Akbar.” — Paul Mpagi Sepuya.

Support the great cause and get your hands on a socially important print at the same time, thanks to Sepuya’s generosity.
