“Unrestrained” investigates masculine identity and vulnerability in young males. Exploring the opposite of a traditional man. This body of work, while specifically depicting males, is about going against what is established by society and getting rid of the gender stereotypes, making your own rules, and defining yourself without using social references that fail to define us.

A popular roller derby tee shirt reads, “Strong. Athletic. Queer.” It was designed by Cristen Perks, aka “Sandy Ravage,” of the Texas Rollergirls, the birthplace of the modern roller derby revival. Women’s sports (like men’s) have always included a number of queer people.

Ever since I was blessed enough to stumble upon Just Daniel and the Queer Sphere on KLSU one rainy night drive home, I knew I wanted to give them the spotlight they deserved. A late-night radio show dedicated to playing queer artists and allies + all alike on public radio?! About, damn, time.
