A strikingly beautiful and haunting new short music film titled "I've Only Just Begun" has gotten thousands of more views this week after comedian Sandra Bernhard and Out.com helped bring it to the attention of western audiences.

The film by Elias Koskimies shows the journey of Venuz Vulgar and his entourage as they march toward St. Petersburg to free an imprisoned friend after Russian laws have banned so-called "homosexual propaganda."

Watch this visually compelling and poignant protest against anti-LGBT sentiment below. You won't soon forget it.
