I try to keep my political views to myself, but you also know that I can't keep quiet when something is really bugging me. Recent statements and actions by certain companies (a youth organization and a restaurant in particular) have me pretty steamed. Especially when they hide behind the term "Family Values."
Being gay never hurt anybody. However hate and prejudice against someone based on their sexuality most certainly does hurt people. Judging someone solely by whom they choose to love is just as stupid as, oh say, judging someone on the color of their skin. And we're better than that.
Or are we...?
I might not be the best practicing Christian, but I do believe in the life and healing power of Jesus Christ and I absolutely will not believe that He's happy with the things that are being said and done in regards to homosexuals in His name. It's these "Believers" that make me ashamed to be called one too.
So I've created this piece to do my part to help:
I'm offering this piece as a fundraiser, with proceeds going to the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD).
The print is $20 shipped anywhere in the world, with all profits going to GLAAD (the prints will be made-to-order, so please allow 1-2 weeks for delivery). If you like the piece but aren't interested in the print, you can get a high-res digital file for a donation of $5 and I'll donate ALL of the proceeds from the high-res payments. ^_^
If you're interested in donating, shoot me an email at email@example.com
