In response to another case of LGBTQI+ violence I portrayed two proud people who won’t let the gender binary restrict them.

I put the iconic pink triangle in the middle of this tryptich, but just as an outline, symbolizing the evolution of self awareness of the LGBTQI+ community and the consequent evolution of it’s symbol. 80 years ago people were marked with this triangle, cast out and even destroyed. After the end of the war the community took control over the sign and used it as a sign of pride. Nowadays the triangle is seen by some as old fashioned, and often replaced by the rainbow sign to symbolize inclusivity and solidarity across the whole community.

 

Just why is a lick of make-up so offensive to some? Gender is a spectrum.
