Lady Stump-tailed Macaques Embrace

Part of a continuing series about queer gender and sexuality in the animal world. My big inspiration lately has been Bruce Bagemihl’s book Biological Exuberance: Animal Homosexuality and Natural Diversity. Mind-blowing! A huge range of behaviors and expressions. I am still working with gender signifiers and how to convey an animal’s sex when we are not used to reading them. These female stump-tailed macaques are kissing as the mounting monkey is climaxing. Hot! Printed at the AS220 Print Shop in Providence, RI.



Note: There is some variation in color and background patterning, as the backgrounds were printed randomly and some of the solids involved multiple colors. There are two distinct color options with the macaques: green or violet (choose at checkout).

Rad Post-Teen Print of the Week: Palm Oil

March 4, 2015

After a long hiatus, I am reviving my Rad Teen Print of the Week series as Rad Post-Teen Print of the Week, to share the amazing work from university students and other post-teens that I’ve been working with here in Toronto. I first forayed into this zone a few years ago with Lauren Jurysta’s Free Pussy Riot silkscreen.
