The Pride Guys is a webcomic about LGBTQ superheroes featuring a cast of culturally and racially diverse individuals. The initial storyline focuses primarily on the seven main characters, but as the story progresses you are introduced to many other characters from the LGBTQ+ community and their allies. Their base of operations is in Washington, D.C., but their adventures will take them far beyond the limits of the District, as they visit different countries, explore other dimensions, travel to outer space, and experience alternate realities. Although this is a comic about superheroes, there are some elements of mythology, magic, fantasy and sci-fi mixed in as well.

Love is Love

Continuing our Pride month celebration I decided to post a piece I submitted for one of my Fine Arts project this past year. The theme was meaning and I decided to go with love.  Below is my artist statement:

“I wanted to explore the meaning of romantic love as I have personally experienced it through the LGBT community. I wanted to show in my work that love between two individuals should not be restricted to just male and female. I further wanted to investigate the importance of diversity within the community itself when it comes to interracial relationships. I researched different images of love as seen through a visual perspective and chose to use men and women kissing in a loving embrace. I illustrated the images in pencil and created digital versions of each one. To further show the aspect of racial diversity I took the images and digitally colored each figure having a different skin-tone. I created a series of twelve prints resulting in a total of twenty-four skin-tones. Obstructing the faces of the subjects and including the uncolored version in the work also allows the viewer to see that love transcends race and leaves them with the ability to place themselves into the piece, making it a personal experience for them as well.”IMG_0725
