I recently completed a mural at the Eagle Portland. In a collaboration with artist Daniel Quasar, I wanted to do something that represented the marginalized and queer communities in town the way I know best, with art. I think everyone should feel like they’re represented, welcome, and safe... and know that there are others here to help and support them.
Actions however speak louder than words, and I really want to support the community locally as best I can. To celebrate the completion of the mural, we've made a limited run of 100 printed posters. All proceeds from these posters are currently going to support the Sexual & Gender Minority Youth Resource Center (SMYRC).
SMYRC is a resource center for transgender and queer youth in Portland. At SMYRC, youth get to participate in positive activities like art, music, community organizing, open mic nights, drag shows, and support groups, as well as receive services including case management, counseling, education, and more.
Thank you all for the love and support, not only that you’ve given me, but to each other and for donating to this cause!
