Kisses at the End of the Tunnel addresses my personal experiences of alienation from LGBT histories. The work has been made under the assumption that limited access to these histories restricts the empowerment of LGBTQ communities today. Kisses attempts to open a passage to LGBT pasts through constructed portals and archivally-sourced re-fabricated objects.
