This video is a hyper-metaphorical representation of a response to the idealised functioning of a ‘queer community’, which is seen as a ‘haven’, as an escapism from the pathologisation of peripheral gender and sexuality, as a subversion of normative preconception. We have explored the term ‘queer’ as a metonym for the malfunction of socio-cultural mechanics, and emphasise the consequent new-normative, pseudo-institutional structures that the queer community has become complacent in engendering - rather than portraying this community as the next step in a progressive social hierarchy, this piece emphasises “community” as a parallel, alternative perspective.
