A party in the closet challenges heterosexual ‘normative’ masculine behaviours. The three male figures leave an open closet, representing a hiding place for feminine and queer attributes. The men are clothed in dresses and high heels showing vulnerability and celebrating gender inclusion. They are breaking free from masculine gender norms and embracing femininity, expressing themselves freely without discrimination. Inspired by the pandemic, the organic green shapes visually represent a transmissible virus, symbolising the negative traits of men that are more deadly than COVID-19. This ‘virus’ of man consists of violence, aggression, ego, power, greed and superiority. This virus must be overcome to allow all men to comfortably express their femininity.
