My 2 Pence - If A Picture Tells A Thousand Words

I was on the tube today here in London and I noticed this poster. The poster is being used to promote a South African photo exhibition. My question is, is the female personator on the poster, the face of contemporary society? In my opinion no. Provocative male effeminacy is just a hate crime waiting to happen and on some levels I think the V&A gallery were in some senses, irresponsible for making this picture the focus of a London-wide campaign.

What do you think? Am I simply overreacting to harmless androgyny?
