My work is focussed mainly around society’s traditional gender roles. I have been challenging this subject using a variety of different models and exploring what discrimination transgender, genderqueer and other non-conforming gender people may face. I have created a family who may not fit into this socially constructed role and my aim is to normalize this to some people who may think otherwise.

I have created a living room that hopefully everyone can relate to and feel comfortable in. With the use of the furniture and ornaments etc, I have purposely tried to create a more traditional old persons living area as if your in you’re grandparents house. I’ve done this so it is relatable and also so I could fill the living room with many different family members photographs like a traditions granny’s house would have. The photographs that I have added in are a family I have created. Each member challenges gender binary in some way or another. This should hopefully make people (who are not already) more comfortable with the idea of someone not adhering to traditional gender roles.
