“Blue Room” is based on the Russian word "голобой ", which is used to refer to “gay”. It serves as the  background against which Amer explores what it means to be gay in Russia, featuring a range of gay men and a diversity of looks, focused on leather. “Blue” serves here as the connecting theme tying all the dots together.
