Sexual Choreography is an interdisciplinary practice-led project exploring my own experience of Queer identity following what is discussed as a post-AIDS era. The research reflected on Queer history, as well as ways in which matters of sexual health, trauma and self-care are communicated and understood in contemporary digital cultures today. The study considered the significance of new technologies, which influence Queer lives and shape behaviours in a shifting social and political landscape. The research involved critical and auto-ethnographic discourse, conveying a nuanced perspective relating to personal loss and harm, as well as the reparative processes of recovery, rehabilitation and self-development.
