While China has seen a lot of growth and progress in the past decade there are still a few traditional ideas that continue to exist. The modern society still considers pink as a feminine color and blue as a masculine one. These two colors have huge impact in stunting societal movements toward gender equality and fluidity. In this project I worked closely with the Shanghai drag community to demonstrate a person is not confined to their stereotype and can therefore be both pink and blue. By mixing the traditional duality of pink-female and blue-male themes I hope to challenge the idea of stereotypes framing our identity.
You can be whoever you want to be, and love yourself for who you are.
