In uncertain times, when right wing agendas are devouring the world, creating their image of Hell where queer people are pawn in a political charade, where non-binary individuals are discriminated by violent political ideologies, Gegen asks to look inside youself: to find that inner fury, to create a new Hell, one of liberation and not of punishment.
A Hell where we no longer have to bow down before the normative scriptures, no longer putting our faith in a punitive father-god-lover-ruler who refuses to see all of us: the sinner and the human, the monster and the angel, the fallen and redeemed.
A radical and free landscape where music, love and sexuality, where the “sins” that fascist imperialist and capitalist rage about, become our better angels: tolerance, diversity, queerness, gender fluidity, these are the wings we fly on: open forever to all those on the outskirts, living as the Other: radicalised by our sexuality, by our identity.
What does Hell mean to you? What would it mean to redeem this landscape into a space that is ours, free from the constraints of a restrictive society: where art and artist, male and female, ethnicity, gender and sexuality are not our defining traits but just expressions of a disused language.
Celebrate who you feel to be. Explore the furthest recess of your fantasies. Refuse to be imprisoned by those living in the chaos of a dystopic malignancy. Reject puritanical societal contamination, dismember your identity, and bow down to the true God of carnal desires and rampant lust. Worship at the altar of freedom.
Dance with us.
Fuck with us.
Party with us.
Set yourself free and live a delicious life in Gegen Hell.
