“Dom (Lyne) and I used to dance the night away at the Ghetto nightclub behind the London Astoria a lifetime ago. We lost touch, but our shared passion for the work of Dennis [Cooper] brought us back into each others lives. Yes, the pictures are about Dom and his mental health, but it’s also about the importance of an alternative queer gaze. An antidote and maybe a reaction to an ever increasing homogenised gay world.” - Marc Vallée, 2014.
