Falling asleep is easy with someone you love, but sleeping through the night can be challenging. These sleeping positions and images are a meditation on the shared connection with a nighttime bedmate.
Drawn from personal experience with my partner, the positions are a journey to knowing what works best. Handshake, Sweet Spot, Criss-Cross and Tippy Toe represent space and balance, not only in bed but in the patterns of our lives. As I move forward in my creative journey, casting queer people of color empowers me to tell not only my story, but others’ as well. I’m extremely grateful to all who participated in this special project. Thank you and Happy Pride.
