Femboi is a self-produced photo zine that explores color, gender expression, and queer life. I wanted to create something that combined my skillset of photography and design, and something that was extremely queer and personal. It was a way to create something outside of the daily job and client work and a project that I could fully own and put my all into it. It was also a form of visual therapy and better accepting myself for who I am and battling internalized homophobia and fatphobia. The result, in the end, was a beautiful pink booklet of queer people juxtaposed with roses and some other flowers—but mainly roses, since they come in a wide variety of styles and colors that people find beautiful despite any imperfects they are or the thorniness of their stems. I wanted it to be a symbol of humans and how we're all different but have beauty in our own ways.
