Pigeon Hole

Pigeon Hole - Still #1 resize.jpg

'Pigeon Hole' comically expresses the filmmaker’s desire to set fire to the restrictive and reductive labels gays use to categorize one another and themselves, especially via hook up websites and apps. A proclamation of liberation from marginalizing stereotypes and sexual exclusivity, the video features labels and descriptors culled from online profiles paired with footage of pigeons and the filmmaker burning down a large birdhouse.

Created with the support of the RT Collective.
