Pigeon Hole comically expresses the filmmaker’s desire to set fire to the restrictive and reductive labels gays use to categorize one another and themselves, especailly via modern methods of hooking up such as online websites and apps. A proclamation of liberation from marginalizing stereotypes and sexual exclusvitiy, the video features labels and descriptors culled from online profiles paired with footage of pigeons and the filmmaker burning down a large birdhouse. The Inside Out LGBT Film Festival commissioned Pigeon Hole for the “In Your Pocket: What’s Your Sex?” project challenging selected filmmakers to shoot and create a short video work utilizing smart phone technology.
