Hello and welcome to A Picture For A Thousand Voices! This is a project to help create a dialogue about the individual hopes for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) equal rights movement through the medium of illustration. Images are a powerful communicator, and by using illustration to help explain why this movement is so important, a more collaborative dialogue can be established towards the goal of achieving equal rights.
If you are an illustrator, ask yourself or your LGBT friends what their hopes for equal rights are and send me(firstname.lastname@example.org)your artwork. If you’re NOT an artist, send in your story, and someone can help illustrate your hope for equal rights (this includes non-gay members of the gay community!).If you are an artist and would like to be involved but don't have a story to illustrate, e-mail me and I will connect you with someone's story.
The idea of equal rights is about understanding others, not just tolerating them. If we can show others, and remind ourselves, why this fight is important, it will be that much easier to win.
