David, In Brief

While working on a photo project about gay and trans men, Jeffrey Braverman comes across a pair of boxer briefs silkscreened with the Renaissance’s most iconic family jewels (belonging to Michelangelo’s David). He begins to interview art historians, religious scholars, activists, and thinkers within the LGBTQ community to learn about the story behind the statue and explore what this chiseled figure has to offer those of us struggling with our own modern-day Goliaths.
