“Do you think she’s gay?”
“She looks like a lesbian.”
“She looks a bit butch. Especially with that haircut. She must be gay.”
“Oh… She definitely looks like a lesbian.”
What exactly does gay look like? Does being gay force people to adhere to a set appearance?
This parallel series follows the lives of two individual women; one who identifies as heterosexual, and the other identifying as homosexual. Sexuality in itself does not define a person. It does not make you dress a certain way. It does not make you style your hair differently. It is merely an aspect of your life that is different from someone who is straight. I decided to capture the daily routine of two women to show the similarities between their lives and keep their sexuality in question until the end. I started the series with a portrait from both women and then followed them around their homes to capture what they do on a daily basis. Showing that sexuality doesn’t matter nor make you look or do anything different from anyone else. To conclude the series, I captured a portrait with their significant other that embody’s their love for one another.
