"Time to Pretend" is a poignant photography project meticulously crafted to illuminate the multifaceted struggles encountered by individuals within the queer community. Through carefully curated series of images, featuring three distinct personas, this project offers an intimate portrayal of the profound pressures and mental health complexities inherent in queer existence.
Each photograph serves as a visual narrative, capturing the intricate layers of identity negotiation amidst the backdrop of societal expectations and discrimination. From the relentless pressure to conform to heteronormative standards, to the pervasive experiences of marginalisation and exclusion, "Time to Pretend" courageously confronts the harsh realities faced by queer individuals on a daily basis.
The project delves into the sobering reality of mental health disparities pervasive within the LGBTQIA+ community. By shedding light on the heightened risks of depression, anxiety, and other mental health challenges experienced by queer individuals, "Time to Pretend" seeks to catalyse a meaningful dialogue surrounding the urgent need for greater support and advocacy.
As a catalyst for societal introspection, this project advocates for the creation of a more equitable and inclusive environment where all individuals, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity, can thrive with dignity and authenticity.
