I’ve decided to dedicate this mural to a seminal historical work in Queer anime: Revolutionary Girl Utena. Released in 1997, this series explores complex themes that were hugely ahead of its time: non-binary gender identification, challenging normative understanding of sexual orientations, domestic violence, and empowerment through growth and acceptance. It was a hugely influential part of my childhood and I hope it can continue to inspire moments of growth for all of us!
NYC Pride's WorldPride Mural Project initiative, is an exciting new initiative in collaboration with production and curation partner, The LISA Project NYC, founding partner, HSBC Bank, and major supporter, Macy’s.
Both local and international artists, 50 in total, were selected to create murals within the five boroughs of New York that reflect and honor the beauty, struggle, and strides of the LGBTQIA+ community.
Over the course of May and mid-June, the complete set of murals will be unveiled, culminating before the WorldPride 2019 | Stonewall 50 season commences and remaining intact throughout the duration of the month's celebration. #WorldPrideMurals #WorldPride2019
