Equality is an extremely important principle for me, and I believe when equality is threatened anywhere, it is threatened everywhere. No one should be discriminated against for the pigment of their skin, nor should they be discriminated for who they love.
I created this image back in 2008, when Prop 8 needed to be overturned to protect marriage equality for same-sex marriage. The fight for basic equality continues to this day. Not only same sex marriage, but for the rights of all LBGTQ+ individuals. It is crucial that we acknowledge the fight and struggle alongside the BLACK LIVES MATTER movement, acknowledging the struggles of our LBGTQ+ community members and people of color during this month of PRIDE.
