Note from the artist

"Queer relationships are not a performance is a piece that was originally created for 'Our Streets Now' - a campaign to end PSH (public sexual harassment) in the UK. Those in queer relationships are increasingly the target of PSH because of their sexual orientation and/or gender identity. This is especially worse for women and femme presenting individuals in WLW relationships and creates a culture of entitlement from men which allows them to believe they deserve a performance of sexuality from these individuals. With this illustration I wanted to depict a safe, comfortable space for the two femme presenting people I was drawing, something I wish I could create in reality for all queer people who experience homophobia or fetishisation of their sexuality and relationships.
