The other day Ali and I visited the exhibit ‘Gay Chic’ at the Museum für Gestaltung in Zurich. The show highlighted how gay has become mainstream in music, film, fashion, and television in European and American culture. This thesis was backed up with pictures of RuPaul, Wham album covers, video installations of Absolutely Fabulous, movie posters for Bound and TransAmerica, and rhinestone-encrusted men’s jewelry from H&M.

We spent what seemed like hours playing with the Chic O Mat, an interactive installation that allowed you to combine the image of your face with images of other people’s heads, and vice versa. That’s how we found out what a sexy boy I’d make, and how lucky Ali is to be a girl.
