Contemplating Queerness and Appearance

I have been thinking about how we perceive queerness, how I seek to express my queerness in my physical appearance, and ones' potentially visible transformation as they further understand their identity as queer. 

These photos of my best friend Griffin are an initial stab at this concept. I sought for the subject to express a clear decision to embrace their queerness, and with hesitation, eventually express that visually with their body. 

I plan on continuing to consider these ideas and respond to them in further projects. Enjoy!
