Artist Statement

This piece depicts an androgynous silhouette of an LGBTQ+ person that is smiling, happy, and has the light and rays of different LGBTQ+ flags coming from the silhouette. I wanted to show that many LGBTQ+ people can be very happy and loving. This topic is meaningful to me because my family has multiple members of the LGBTQ+ community and depicting the community in a positive light is important to me.
