The Quiet Gays Club

by Boaz Suen 

‘The Quiet Gays Club’ is a speculative publishing and branding project which challenges the rainbow as the only marketable expression of gay identity. This project demonstrates an alternative way of designing for the community without commodifying its culture for consumer-led profit. Writing by gay authors is repackaged in collectable forms and distributed via a donate-to-subscribe platform — with profits going to charities that support the community. In ‘Nanette’, Hannah Gadsby asks “Where do the quiet gays go?”. ‘The Quiet Gays Club’ is a direct response, providing a virtual community for individuals seeking to express their identity and pride in subtler ways.
