Västtrafik at EuroPride2018


Hand painted tram for Västtrafik as part of EuroPride 2018. Västtrafik is the public transport service in the city of Gothenburg, Sweden.

My work, named Gender Fluid – “is a blue tram full of gender fluid fish, snails and corals. A lot of creatures in our oceans have this amazing, wide gender spectrum. Some start their lives as females and later become male, some change whenever they want and some don’t have to choose at all. I wish I could too.

The project was documented in this beautiful film by director Malin Ingrid Johansson. More information about the project can be found here.

Gender Fluid was one of six trams that together formed the colors of the rainbow. The trams circulated the city of Gothenburg during EuroPride2018. They were also photographed and auctioned at Bukowskis. All profit from the auction was donated to RFSL – The Swedish Federation for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Queer Rights.
