Gay in Trumpland.
For the first time, I saw my own present turning into art. This exhibition (by artist @ron_amato) reminded me the timeless words of singer and activist Nina Simone: “An artist’s duty, as far as I’m concerned, is to reflect the times. I think that is true of painters, sculptors, poets, musicians. As far as I’m concerned, it’s their choice, but I choose to reflect the times and situations in which I find myself. That, to me, is my duty. And at this crucial time in our lives, when everything is so desperate, when everyday is a matter of survival, I don’t think you can help but be involved.” We’re all know the reality that Trump jeopardizes basic human rights and has empathy for people who have anti-LGTBQ records. America has taken the leadership of LGTBQ rights movement and influenced other countries such as my homeland Colombia to fight for the same cause. Our rights must be protected now more than ever. I do not want to see my community hidden and infringed after all the progress of recognition.
