the porn won’t load is an examination of the social construction of pornography and its cultural output. For many young gay men pornography is the first visual access point to homosexuality, often consumed during formative and developmental periods. the porn won’t load explores the shaping of homonormative structures within porn; sculpted bodies, quaffed hair, non-intimate sexual practices and their effect on bodies that don’t mirror those depicted.
