sexual diversity in the Netherlands
How can visibility play a role in the improvement of the social acceptance towards sexual diversity?
The goal to reach more visibility of homosexuals is a concept where design can play a role. It might not solve the social inequality but it can create a starting point to discuss the contemporary situation in the Netherlands. Create awareness about the conflict and not feeling socially accepted. In my opinion it is important to create apprehension towards each other, not in a provoking but a subtile way.
CONFLICT OF INTEREST
THE IMPORTANCE OF AWARENESS
To be able to change something towards the social acceptance of homosexuality, it is important to get the majority - in this case the heterosexuals -, behind you, and let them support the minority. But before they will stand out for homosexuals they need to be aware of the current situation.
With these posters you can show the judgments that are still often said to homosexuals, when they tell or show people that they are gay. It confirms that parochialism towards homosexuals is still present these days, but it can also play a role into the awareness of both the current situation, but also the way you might approach homosexuals.
