The Gay community is strife with fat phobia and body shaming. This can be evidenced by Gay dating apps such as Grindr. Phrases such as ‘Masc 4 Masc’ and ‘No Fats, No Femmes, No Blacks and No Asians’ both derive from these spaces, which can be harmful to their users.
My goal is to launch an augmented reality art exhibition called Chubby Brown Boys. This project subverts the classic male homoerotic GAYze by challenging body oppression within the gay community. The exhibition will aim to boost positive body image and self-worth by celebrating chubby men (and hopefully other members of the community that do not fit the ‘mould’)
