“I’m extremely thankful for the vital dialogue about gender. Without the deconstruction of my perspectives on gender, I wouldn’t have found such joy, luxury and resilience in my own being”– Liam MacKenzie, He/Him or They/Them
Photographer Liam Mackenzie, featured on the back page of the November issue, was part of a video by Cooper & O’Hara.
In this video, Liam talks about how his art reflects who he is, and how he came to terms with his sexuality.
“Growing up, I didn’t have much interaction with some things and when I did, it was shown in a bad light or it was shamed in a way.”
“That’s why I focus so much on those things in my art.”
“I don’t want people to feel the things that I felt. I think we should move away from something being bad. It’s not bad, it’s not dirty, it is what it is, it is what you make it to be.”
