Throughout history, minority groups have been sidelined and oppressed. I feel it's time for that era to end and my work heavily reflects this. This project focuses on the gay community, looking into and reliving their personal experience of going against societies 'traditions'. Each photograph is taken in the location the subject feels is their personal coming out story, whether that be the first coming out or later at a significant point in their life. The images are accompanied by the individual's description of this experience. By providing this platform for expression, it allows the viewer to understand how coming out as gay, lesbian, bisexual or pansexual in modern day society can feel.
