Open Up

An explosive movement full of pride and strength against the still relevant conscious and unconscious homophobic utterances in public.

Open Up is a wearable mechanism that arises from the discomfort I experience when people curse with gay. The people who do this often don't realize the impact they have, while I feel attacked and my shoulders cringe. Inspired by the animal kingdom, this mechanism allows me to open up and defend myself against these situations. The mechanism dismantles itself when I resist my physical reaction and put my chest forward. It shows people what such action and, in their perspective innocent jokes can do to me. Or people who still struggle with their sexuality.
