The Kind of Flag I Would Make

The Kind of Flag I Would Make seeks to answer the question “What is queer joy?”, using the symbolism for each colour of the original pride flag designed by Gilbert Baker in 1978 as a guiding parameter for enquiry. This work is a product of collaborative devising around an original stimulus, The Strangers' Case monologue from Sir Thomas More, through which we discovered a sense of political purpose and urgency. Ultimately influenced by zines and Katie Mitchell's work, The Kind of Flag I Would Make embraces the physical and grass-root quality of the making process in our own multimedia manifestation of the beauty, love, and happiness that floods the LGBTQIA+ community.
