Pure Joy erupted throughout the U.S. on June 26th, 2015 after the ruling on Marriage Equality. Many people close to me, not only family and friends, but also acquaintances, detractors, and strangers I’ve only ever seen heroically tell their story from the television or news articles, have been examples or horrendous discrimination within our so-called civilized society- over something as minute as sexual preference. This type of blatant ignorance and disregard for human dignity is such a curious example of detraction from some of the most important qualities that make us human; among them- Love. I think the argument could be made that this type of disparagement is not only dangerous to those who are discriminated against, but also for those that commit the discrimination. And with the power and obligation that artists hold with their visual communication, I believe the healthiest way to approach such issues, is to showcase pure Joy in the face of intolerance and injustice. Love Wins.
