Digital Intimacy

In 2013, a group of men who identify as gay explored their experiences of digital social media, and how presenting themselves in gay online forums affects their sense of identity in the non-virtual world.

At the sessions I always found a nice escape from everything, I was always really interested in what the older generation had to tell me and every time I left that room, I was in a noticeably better mood for the rest of the day.

About the Project

Over the course of eight weeks, a group of men who identify as gay explored their experiences of digital social media, and how presenting themselves in gay online forums affects their sense of identity in the non-virtual world.

Working with artists Kieran Sheehan, Douglas Nicolson and Jake Kelly, they have created a performance using movement, photography and video based on their discussions.

In 2013 the group presented their work at a sharing at the Central School for Speech and Drama
