BE YOU, BE PROUD
Love and respect is not only for men and women. Everyone deserves to be loved and respected. No one deserves to be oppressed just because of its sexuality. And No one deserves to live in fear and be abused.
As you observed on my artwork you can see that the rainbow color is dominant. Have you ever wonder why rainbow color is what i used? The rainbow flag represents lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT) and queer pride, as well as LGBT social movements. The colors of the gay pride flag, also known as the LGBT pride flag, reflect the diversity of the LGBT community as well as the spectrum of human sexuality and gender. It featured eight colors, each with a different meaning. At the top was hot pink, which represented sex, red for life, orange for healing, yellow for sunlight, green for nature, turquoise for art, indigo for harmony, and finally violet at the bottom for spirit.

Moreover, as we celebrate this Pride Month, you can tell everyone who you really are and show your true color. You don’t have to be afraid in society. You don’t have to show your true color. I created this artwork to show to everyone that even people who have faced abuse, bullying, and fear because of their sexuality can come together as one. This month is dedicated to celebrating everyone who is a part of this beautiful community and is proud to be a part of it. Although they may be judged by other entitled Filipinos, LGBT communities are unconcerned. They are surrounded by Pride. They are bursting with pride at the prospect of becoming stars. Always remember: Be you, Be proud.
“Love demands expression. It will not stay still, stay silent, be good, be modest, be seen and not heard, no. It will break out in tongues of praise, the high note that smashes the glass and spills the liquid.” — Jeanette Winterson
