Gay Simulator

‘Gay Simulator’ is an interactive VR experience and video game that introduces you in a poetic way to the world of a lesbian. It is an artistic ode to sexual orientation, love and sexuality with a serious undertone. It portrays the modern forms of discrimination against lesbians. 

It is a playful and humorous experience with a serious message. It holds up a mirror to society to confront them with the ‘invisible’ ways of discrimination and blind spots in our culture. ‘Gay Simulator’ is also about the discovery of your sexuality, self acceptance and being embraced by the love of the queer community. It celebrates diversity and inclusivity.

The purpose of ‘Gay Simulator’ is to let the player experience in a playful way what it’s like to be a lesbian and to create awareness for the verbal and physical forms of violence that lesbians encounter. By presenting ‘Gay Simulator’ as a VR simulation game a broader audience can be reached. ‘Gay Simulator’ will become a physical art installation that travels to different festivals and exhibitions, as well as an online art game that everyone can experience with a VR headset at home.
