Once upon a time of zoom meetings, selfie broadcasting and snap-chat masks there was a country that had LGBTQ+ free zones: ‘zones free of queer ideology’ they called them in the country, but meant: zones free of queer people. The country was part of the EU. The zones were completely mundane and full of strange creatures. We went there. The rest is history.

Zoom seems like a bad thing. (Close but far, human but square, normal but exhausting....)

So we start from Zoom. And we feel awkward. Like it’s a substitute that we’re trying to make ours, to believe this is not just a sex doll. (Because it’s not)

We want to make it bearable. Not just bearable. Cozy. And nice. 

Now, stay with us: maybe it’s a metaphor of Europe. Or the EU. The universal language of Europe has this awkward quality, like it’s a substitute. Focus on it not being virtual. The opposite of Matrix - there is a spoon. There is a spoon.
