Coming Out

Throughout history, minority groups have been sidelines and oppressed. I feel it’s time for thatera to end and my work heavily reflects this. This project focuses on the gay community looking intoand reliving their personal experience of going against society’s ‘traditions’.

Each phtograph istaken in the location that the subject feels reflects 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 the experience. By providing this platform of expression, the viewer can understand how coming out as gay, lesbian, bi-sexual or pan-sexual in modern day society feels in modern day society.
