フィクションの中だけの存在だと思ったかい?/ Did you think I was a character in a fantasy?

LGBTq+は最近日本でも話題に上がっているが、その議論は「LGBTq+ってきっとこう」というレッテルや思い込みを含んだ「想像上のLGBTq+像」を元に行われている感じが否めない。

また、性のマイノリティに好意的な人も「漫画・ゲームの中の世界の話」が前提に話が進むことがある。

Miyabiはトランスジェンダー男性であり、LGBTq+当事者の1人として、「ここに、実際に生活している人間である」ことをこの作品シリーズで提示する。

LGBTq+ has recently become a hot topic in Japan due to global influences.

However, there is an undeniable sense that the discussions are based on an imaginary LGBTq+ image that includes labels and assumptions about what LGBTq+ people are like.

Even people who are friendly to minorities sometimes treat them as if they are the stuff of comic or video games.

Miyabi is a transgender male.

As an LGBTq+ person, he is showing through this series that he actually exists in this world and lives his life as a human being.

Miyabiはこの油絵作品を使って写真作品も制作した。

周りの舞台の道具のような、装飾のような感じをあえて取り入れている。

Miyabi also created a photographic work using this oil painting.

He dared to place the decorations around his work in a way that made it look like a stage or a fiction.
