Jun 17, 2015

Society places 'norms' on gender based on physical aspects of the human body. Boy or Girl. Those two words are determined by physical attributes. Those two words shape the presence of human beings. Life roles, life goals, clothing, hair, stance, posture, tone of voice, leisure time activities, behaviors, expressions. Expression of gender is trained and even celebrated in our culture, all based on cultural mores. Should any behavior deviate from the established mores, there is a disconnect that causes discomfort and dis-ease in society. I wanted to explore gender and find out what peole think #genderis so my friend Darius Mooring and I went to Gay Pride in Philadelphia and asked random stranges and a few of my friends to fill out a flyer.
