1st LGBTQ+ show in Erie, PA
Acceptance, pure and simple. We are not going back into anybody's closet, certainly not the bastard's currently in the WH.
I found this exhibit's call for entry and thought both positive and negative things: why only now, so far into it? and yay, good for them. I submitted this painting that speaks to Ptown and all that town means, opting to focus on the yay good for them part.
I won an award, the painting sold and I got to meet Sharon and Hrag, and Brad, Mike and Ginny, a awesome positive experience all around.
In the words of that old song by Madeline Davis: "you can take your tolerance and shove it".
