Batty Bwoy is Jamaican slang for a gay or effeminate man and means “butt boy”.
Batty Bwoy is a deceiver of masculinity, a predator, a “murderous queen” and a “flaming queen”.
Batty Bwoy crawls, swallows, inhales and invokes senseless “batty energy” and a sensitive desire. Batty Bwoy dives into absurd narratives and corporeal fictions of homophobic origin, and expands into the demonic and mystical in these displaced bodies.
Batty Bwoy manifests as an ambivalent creature in an embodiment of cemented ideas around gay blackness, and reveals the essence and horror of Batty Bwoy

Batty Bwoy er en solo av Harald Beharie i samarbeid med Karoline Bakken Lund, Veronica Bruce, Ring van Möbius og Phillip Mcleod.
