One morning on the bus I overheard a teenager describe a gay couple in his class as "never having more than a fag paper between them". I'd never heard this term before and it stuck in my mind, making me think about how different things were for me at that age. I didn't know anyone gay, there were no 'out and proud' gay public figures or couples and school was an exclusively heteronormative environment due to section 28. What I did have though, was a collection of gay pornography, and I guess the couples in these magazines were who I had to look up to.

Sourcing imagery of 'couples' from my collection of gay pornography, drawings are then created on an original and challenging medium:  cigarette papers.
