In this Dream Sequence.22 episode Tarik Ahlip positions the online space as an inherently queer one within a narrative that meshes race, sexuality, class and online safety.

Two events took place on different dates at a sex venue in Western Sydney. Both these events and the intervening online interactions were preceded by a palpable sense of danger. Tarik's video work explores the spectrum of queer visibility and the community that gathers both within the confines of a physical space and the obscurity of the digital realm.
