Pride Is A Protest
10th July 2019
It’s currently available for the next few weeks on Everpress, this time to raise funds for My Genderation, a non-profit company I co-founded, which makes trans related film content.
It was such a delight when I was asked if my illustration ‘Pride Is A Protest’ would take over ad-space in NYC during #WorldPride, just by The Stonewall Inn.
I was invited to be part of a series of seven installations by LGBT+ artists whose work addresses LGBT+ topics to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the #StonewallRiots
Being part of Art In Ad Places is unique because it provides a platform to ‘sell’ something much more real, to be able to reach people when they least expect it.
I chose to highlight that Pride Is A Protest because it’s 50 years since the Stonewall Riots and in so many countries, people continue to be persecuted for their gender identity, expression, and their romantic preference.
A massive thanks to @queerstreetart @dustyrebel and @artinadplaces for giving a platform to queer / trans artists like myself.
