In 2002 while attending a Catholic wedding, I experienced the homophobic nature of the Church of Rome. During his homily to the bride and groom, the Priest out of nowhere started talking about the gay community in reference to marriage and family. The Priest referred to the gay community as… “Being no better than wallowing swine.” All at once, attendees at the ceremony who knew me; turned around in their seats to witness my reaction. I sat silently and felt inspiration wash over me.
Knowing the history of the Catholic Church and the horrific behavior of Priests and young boys, rather than verbally giving a response to the Priests comments, I generated a visual response in the form of the below Polaroid’s.
How fitting that a Priest know what it’s like to be dominated and experience the lose of control.
