Examples of Queer Domesticity is a piece of textile, based on the theme of queer domesticity in the bathroom. Drawing from examples that Al Hill and their queer family have experienced in their flat, a dialogue is created from the mundanity of the queer experience.
The text on the piece reads:
"BOXER SHORTS W/ BLOOD STAINS
THE BATH AS THE SALON
GRADE ONE ALL OVER
CHOSEN FAMILY CHRISTMAS MEAL WASHING UP TUB
EMPTY TRAVEL BOTTLE FROM A FRIENDS STAY
CRAMPED BATHS W/ YOUR S/O
SEX TOYS DRYING ON SUCTION CUPS

.........ARE ALL EXAMPLES OF QUEER DOMESTICITY"
