WE WANT YOU TO IMAGINE NEW TINY SEXES IN THE FORM OF DRAWINGS, DIAGRAMS, AND TEXTUAL DESCRIPTIONS
To imagine that there are only two sexes - M & F - is an absurdity. There are at least 1000 sexes. The daily lived reality of transgender and intersexual people (and gay, lesbian, queer and all other people, for that matter) proves this over and over again, yet many people continue to operate as if 'M' and 'F' are the only sexes, the only options, the only expressions, the only goals, the only way ("the way it is").
Help us imagine 1000 more sexes. Describe them, imagine them, invent them, publish them, use them, realize them, perform them.
A Thousand Tiny Sexes is an art-book-research-action project to collect and publish 1000 proposals for TINY SEXES which are not Male or Female. We are setting out to collect a thousand more sexes - imaginary ones, as-yet-unrealized ones, or real ones- in the hopes that these one thousand might make for one thousand more after that. In so doing, we hope to contribute to a collective reimagining of sex as a legal, biological, political, economic, cultural, and political category.
