To The Straights as part of What it is, Yet a Dream-map

7 April, 2022 until 5 May, 2022

To The Straights, (2021-2022) is a multimedia project, its contents mingled and bled into writing, photography, installation and performance. Driven by frustration, sadness and a spoonful of hope, the work became a reflection of Naomi Moonlion’s experiences as a non binary queer person in the Netherlands.

It is an attempt to start a conversation, with those making living genuinely and openly so difficult. Sharing conflicting thoughts and whispered wishes, often only spoken out loud in private queer spaces. Outing themselves in a way that they often keep hidden under layers of masks, desperately trying to fit in, to stay safe.

Everyday we are surrounded by people with completely different lives and opinions from us, yet, we almost never meet calmly in conversation. Whilst they love some queer leftwing echo chambers, the reality is different.

Through To the Straights, Moonlion invite you to listen and share, to create new understandings of the world around us. And perhaps, to encourage you, to share your truths a little more fearlessly. To accept that time can be queer, and does not have to follow an unyielding heteronormative path.
