Julius, a young artist from Toronto, talks about his experiences of coming out – First recognizing his same-sex attraction in the Philippines and then once he immigrated to Canada, he notes some significant differences in the coming out process. He continues to work with issues of acceptance and homonormativity in his art practice. Julius’s artwork can be viewed at:
