Mijal is a non-binary & feminist photographer from Argentina currently based in Barcelona. The artist uses Instagram to express topics such as discrimination & oppression in all its forms. For this ongoing series Mijal has photographed queer couples in their intimacy.
Representation of queer couples in the media is really important. The complicity, the warmth and the understanding between them is something I admire. For cis and heterosexual people, seeing queer couples can be uncomfortable and for that reason they need to be everywhere. Compulsive heterosexuality needs to be replaced by acknowledging that all types of identity deserve love and to be accepted. It’s not about preferences, it’s about changing how we perceive bodies and how our desire is always towards one specific canon. And Im really happy that’s changing and I’m here to watch it.
