Department of Homo Affairs

The Department of Homo Affairs is a performance and research collective, generating critical queer commentary and artefacts relating to Australia’s border politics and cultures of white supremacy and xenophobia. The Department’s practice is broad but currently centres on film production, costume design, print (fabrics and paper) and choreography. The Department of Homo Affairs participated in the 2018 Gay and Lesbian Mardi gras with their critical contribution Turn Back The Floats. They have also produced a small publication Employment Handbook, as well as postcards and t-shirts for the 2019 Other Worlds Zine Fair. The Department is currently working towards Operation If I Could Turn Back Time to coincide with the 250th Anniversary of the arrival of Captain Cook to Australia. Doha is a Finalist in the 2019 Incinerator Award.
