The Irrepressibles
Grisart Lab

A documentary project that tells the stories of men from different countries around the world who have overcome feelings of guilt and shame about their own repressed sexual identity or as a result of family, societal or cultural imposition.

Mainly by remarks made by our mothers when talking about sexual orientation.

The purpose of this project is to show, by faces unlike mine, the effect produced on mine when hearing these types of comment that are motivated by hate and rejection, leading to the denial of our own bodies, depriving us of our voices and hiding our faces and our sexuality.

“Don’t wave your hands about or people will know”.

“Please lets make sure nobody finds out; it’ll be our secret”.

Mens are from Colombia, Argentina, Spain, France, Portugal, Italy, Greece and Mexico.
