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...


FAF research online is exhaustive... There is a bunch of research from anthropologist who for centuries have been dissecting Samoan culture, trying to get their heads around 'Fa'afafine'. But for every research paper published and accessible online, the external perspectives of these theorist and wankademics still make absolutely no sense to me.

JERRY wants to be fucking interviewed about the FAFS! why is it.... that in none of this research is their a perspective from the generic gays, from the straight up cock suckers, The Jerrys, The married men that fuck single post pubescent boys who posture as grown men? I'm sure we could tell you a story or two about those other queens.

This shit is gay, yet I feel like if we were cocks in frocks we'd make better research subjects...

Enjoy the POLLY GAY PICKNICK.... new work xx Jerry!!
