Untitled (Larry and Bobby Kissing) is a series of performances and public art that adapts a 1979 black-and-white photograph by Robert Mapplethrope of a kiss between leather men. Recasting Larry and Bobby in each iteration results in differences of queer representation and intimacy—two ideas explored through living history.

The public art campaign will target and expose Generation Z, 18- to 23-year-olds to queerness at an age when tolerance and acceptance can be formative. I'm currently working on a 12-month, social media plan with a marketing agency to be launched in 2022. The science is such that we can match a video clip from Untitled (Larry and Bobby Kissing) to their liking and/or serve-up something that would broaden their experience. This series advances the historic, social-engagement campaigns of Gran Fury—Read My Lips and Kissing Doesn't Kill: Greed and Indifference Do—by reaching a broader audience online instead of outdoors. Fundraising campaign to be announced.
