“GayTag” is a series of Illustrations representing the stereotypical characters in the gay community in Israel. On one hand – the gay community is so divergent and has a place for every kind of person. But on the other hand – the tags and stereotypes are so strong,
that it may seem like there is no place for an individual tag-less person in such a community.
While gathering information for the project I realized how fast members of the gay community could list all of the tags, and how frustrated most of them were about the dichotomy of these tags.
All the characters – are based on real stereotyped characters and slang from the gay community, and all the quotes are real sentences gay people told me, or taken straight out of the gay mobile apps.
