"update your hate?"
The backdrop, beginning from left to right, starts off with historical pictures of riots, arrests, and marches (during the Stonewall era uprisings) and gradually evolves from black and white imagery, to colorful, recent/current depictions and accomplishments for the LGBTQ community. I still have not added text but when I do, it will be something like, "Sexuality and Gender" at the top, followed by "It's Happening" down below. Either that or "normalize fluidity" or "update your hate"
The main issue that inspired me to work on this project was a few conversations I had with some of my trans friends having anxiety and fear when having to use restrooms that use gender normative symbols that are limited to a spec of the spectrum. I would love to receive feedback on the poster and hear some immediate thoughts and what might be done in order to carry the message across in a bolder manner
