Gay Marriage, the Samoan Community and Its Hypocrisy
I always imagine some day i'd write my post grad based on what visible information existed online and was collected on this blog. For me this space is where I get to share what is often a truncated version of some of those findings. The translation to my own social media output is always aligned to my visual language as an artist. So sometimes the conversations are articulated as art works. (FLASHING LIGHTS AND PRETTY LIL PICTURES)
I wanted to share the above blog post titled 'Gay marriage, The Samoan Community and its Hypocrisy' because here for the first time is a refreshing perspective on the issue. This intelligent and articulate voice carefully and in a sharp and considered manner, disassembles a lot of SAMOAS cultural double standards when it comes to sex and homosexuality.
This text is the first one in a long time that I've felt connected to as an artist. I really enjoyed the writing. Please click the Link and have a jack at it yourself. It may speak to you as it clearly has to me. As a gesture to the conviction of equality I thought I gift to you a picture of myself and what I really look like.
