Renounce the Monster
2017
Lesbian activists of the 1960s characterised aggressive dominant male behaviour as sub-human or monstrous.

By lampooning patriarchal power, they aimed to lessen its impact and embolden people from all walks of life to renounce gender-based oppression.

The Remember 1967 series consists of six digital billboards created to mark the 50th anniversary of the Sexual Offences Act 1967.

With the passing of the Act, gay and bisexual men in England and Wales were able to have sexual relationships for the first time without being automatically criminalised.

Remember 1967 echoes demands made by activists in the 1960s that still warrant action today.
