Activist Poster - Never Yield To Force

Activist Poster - Never Yield To Force

For my activist poster, I wanted to create a visual as well as colorful representation of the mentality that I think the LGBT community has taken on over the years. From the very beginning, the LGBT community has been fighting an uphill battle, but remained non-violent and optimistic that one day they would be able to express themselves in any shape or form as they chose. That day is coming, however, globally there still remains a negative outlook in many third world countries that do not have adequate educational institutions.

"Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy." This quote means a lot of things to a lot of different people. In World War II, Churchill was referring to the overwhelming might of Nazi Germany and how Britain and other powers could not let Germany rule the entire world. In reference to the LGBT community, the quote refers to the challenges that the community has faced and despite them, still holding their head high and fighting for their rights. The man in this picture with rainbow colors surrounding him represents the LGBT community.  The crashing wave represents the might of the enemy trying to bring down anyone in its path. The umbrella the man is holding represents that even the force is very apparent and strong, the crashing wave will not devour the man's (LGBT community) life and dictate what he has to do.
