My work examines sexuality and the prejudice that surrounds it. As a gay woman I have been confident in my sexuality from a very young age but I often still experience hostility that makes me hide who I am. This project is a reflection of the ongoing struggle between our natural desire to conform and the need to be who we truly are. It is an examination of homophobia from an internal as well as external perspective. This body of work is a journey from barbaric aversion therapy to sexual liberation. A journey that millions across the world are on today.
