the gay sweater

Sometimes spreading awareness about a serious social issue goes down better in the form of a cheeky art project. This one ↑ is a play on words. When someone says “that’s so gay” they may not be aware of the implications in their word choice but this sweater really illuminates the problems inherent in this kind of turn of phrase. This sweater was made from 100% gay fibre! The materials comes from donated human hair from gay volunteers, and can therefore truthfully be described as “so gay”.
