The turmoil of subconscious homosexual desire...I did this still-life in 1993. In hindsight, it is a reflection of what back then seemed the impossibility of two men copulating, something that was obviously in the sub conscious strata of my mind. Now I wear my gay pride on my sleeve after many years of torture! It's OK to be gay. Hopefully we are about to legalise gay marriage in Australia, and finally, after having been engaged to two different men in my life, I will have the opportunity, if I choose, to have my marriage validated and legal like the heteronormative status quo. Celebrate pride, but don't forget the journeys we have had to go through, and for goodness sakes, if you are a comfortable person of maturity and comfortable with your sexuality, counsel those less sure to be their authentic selves for their greatest happiness and their highest good!
