The Remember 1967 series consists of six digital billboards created to mark the 50th anniversary of the Sexual Offences Act 1967.

With the passing of the Act, gay and bisexual men in England and Wales were able to have sexual relationships for the first time without being automatically criminalised.

Remember 1967 echoes demands made by activists in the 1960s that still warrant action today.

Illustrated is a detail from the site-specific installation of six consecutive billboards located on the Cromwell Road, London, UK.

Radical feminists maintained that the only way for a woman to escape male domination entirely was to embrace lesbianism.

They lampooned the alpha male as a monstrous gorilla-man, disempowering the idea of male domination by portraying it as ludicrous.
