“That Feels Oppressive”…Because It Is

“To grow up in a society that is overwhelmingly and stiflingly homophobic, and to somehow escape unscathed would be miraculous.”

From microaggressions and their impact, to living under the heternomative gaze, to the damage done by “well-meaning, well-intentioned” people, this is a rich message that blasts back at homophobia.

Video Description:

Video made with the help of Conor Horgan, Caroline Campbell, Nicky Gogan and Ailish Bracken. With thanks to cast and crew at the Abbey Theatre.”

I'm a Social Justice Educator and Aspiring Humanitarian who is interested in conflict resolution, improving intergroup relations, and building more equitable and inclusive communities. "Notes from an Aspiring Humanitarian" is my blog, where I write about issues of diversity, inclusion, equity, and social justice. By exploring social identities through written word, film & video, and other forms of media, I hope to continue to expand and enrich conversations about social issues that face our society, and to find ways to take social action while encouraging others to do so as well in their own ways.
