DESCRIPTION:
PUBLIC DISPLAYS OF ACCEPTANCE (PDAs) is a series of public intervention performances that take place once a month from November 2009 through May 2010. The artists pair up same-sex couples composed of one straight and one gay person. For each intervention the group performs one unifying public display of affection, i.e. handholding, walking arm in arm, standing and hugging, etc. for up to an hour at a time.

The intention of the PDAs is to create more visibility for same-sex intimacy, to give the straight participant the experience of his/her gay counterpart, and to allow the gay participants to gain public acceptance.
