The topic of homosexuality was considered taboo up until recently, something that had to be hidden, something that was part of the prohibited world and like everything that happens in society, such taboo was perfectly reflected in art
Instead today men and women, just like artists, want to feel free to express their own sexuality, to reveal it, or to imply it as long as it’s a free and independent choice void of any external social conditioning. Many artists use their art to make the public aware of important topics like AIDS, which touched them directly or indirectly, others use homosexuality only as a deterrent to study forms, poses or styles. It’s quite difficult to outline a profile that associates all the below mentioned artists, even if the common thread is that of having chosen topics and subjects that have to do with homosexuality. The approaches are very different, and the styles very distant.
