Hi, I’m Jonny

On gender fluidity

Before birth certificates and passport photos and phone calls to family, your gender was assigned to you. What is ‘normal’? Through globalization accompanied by the internet era, the diversity of humanity is more visible now than ever. To visually discuss this cultural revolution people are moving to the core of the previously unquestionable and solidly categorised idea of gender. Black/white. Yes/no. Male/female.

People acknowledge the emphasis and social pressures equally placed on people of all gender, or no gender, to fulfill a narrow and archaic ‘norm’. Finally, the roots of our society are being examined and repositioned. What does it mean to be a man? What does it mean to be a woman?

The real question: what does it mean to be human?
