Fifty Years of Pride

I am working on a painting currently that is so much more than simply a painting. A friend approached me and asked if I could paint an album cover for him, and I excitedly said yes.

Once he told me what he wanted and what it was for I got even more excited. He’s putting together an album of queer-positive punk music from his younger years, and wanted to get it out and available before Pride Month is over, as a commemorative to Stonewall.

Fifty years later, the battles are (at least for some) slightly less, but there is still a long, long way to go. Nobody should ever decide who you should love, and it’s far overdue for everyone to understand this. I, for one, am proud to be a part of something like this. Pictures and links to the album to come later.
