Pride is so important to me because I spent my formative years being afraid and ashamed of who I am. I've since worked on deconstructing and understanding these conflicting underlying emotions and self-perceptions, and slowly developing my own sense of Pride.
Many of my paintings inherently discuss queer identity development, identity concealment, and ultimately, what Pride means to me.
Happy Pride ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜🤎🖤
