an interview with artist kegan marling

today at the appeal, i interview kegan marling about his new work "jump ship mid way." marling says, "i started talking to peers about their experience of what it means to be a gay adult and found that most didn't identify themselves as "adult," despite being of an age that is traditionally associated with maturity and adulthood. this traditional understanding of "adulthood" seems to be a choice we make, and a choice that not many gay men are making. is it a resistance to "normalizing" our sexuality? a desire to remain eternally youthful? or the lack of gay role models to offer alternatives? i felt this was worth exploring." read the full column here.
