Photo project inspired by the bullying I have seen men in my life endure for displaying ‘feminine’ traits. This type of bullying and violence shows the many intersections of bigotry, especially with the use of the word f*ggot. I wanted to challenge the homophobic, sexist notions that people who identify as men are inherently less valuable when they embrace femininity. I wanted to show just how beautiful it is and can be, and challenge the still strict gender roles upheld and reproduced throughout everyday life.
