I live in Manukau City, South of Auckland; New Zealand. We have the densest pacific island population of any country in the world. The given is that meeting other like minded queers like yourself is easy, since geographically we’re all in the same city. You would think it were that simple. The Polynesian Princes of south Auckland are as closeted as the gays in the NRL. They have refined their visibility to a passing fragrance of I WANNA FUCK YOU BUT I”M WITH HER. The problem with this metaphor is that it reeks of homos in south Auckland but these men have succeeded in making themselves invisible.

So therein lays the problem of trying to engage and understand a type of man that exists only in theory. I imagine this type of man as wanting to express his sexual fluidity and attraction to the same sex however being stunted by his contradicting physicality, one of which is typically hetronormative and in gender specific terms what is appropriate for him to conform to i.e. “I am built in the manner of a man that is only biologically compatible with a significant other of the opposite sex”. This belief system is made a mantra that affirms a masculine stereotype and a gender ideal that is perpetuated, driven and motivated both sociologically and politically by a western heterosexual statuesque and moral majority.

The art works posted on this blog are inspired by this idea. This is JERRY THE FA’AFAFINE he is pleased to have finally found you and met you...


The punishment for posting up gay shit of yourself on the internet is having it shared and reposted in a polly gay listing like JERRY THE FAF. There is something gay about oiling up for a web cam... Had to take it there... #JustSaying

So go head boys... just like 'Justin Bieber' taught you... go and live your life. hahahaha

  1. That is true! oiling it up for the webcam... and the bleached blonde hair. It does scream gay. A lot of nesian men are pretty boiz - men who you swear will roll with you on the downlow but because of society don't act on their feelings openly. Everything is kept in secret and in the dark. Yeah, more dudes need to listen to this song :) Time to live our lives.
