Rewriting the stories of queer lives

To be yourself in a world that perceives you as deviant is a courageous and revolutionary act. The discourse of cisheteronormativity weighs on the daily efforts of queer people to exist and to figure their presence within a European landscape that has erased their subjectivity at the intersection of gender and sexuality. Being a lesbian myself, I try to make our experiences visible through photography and writing, in order to rewrite the stories of queer lives that have been erased from history.

About the artist

Sacha Celine Verheij

Brussels, Belgium

As a biracial lesbian woman, I often don't see myself reflected in the world that is centered around maleness, heterosexuality and white normativity. Via photography and writing I aim to change this.
