Nando Messias engages with representations of effeminate men and the queer body. He explores its visibility, invisibility and hyper-visibility and connects this with the way his ‘sissy’ body has been derided, ridiculed, punished, but also celebrated. Walking Failure looks at his inability and unwillingness to ‘walk like a man’ and the potentially devastating consequences of walking with a swish.
“I want to draw
attention to sissiphobic violence, to resist common misconceptions of gender
misalignment and to reinvent the sissybody as glorious.” Nando
