This year we march


It was a Sunday morning like most in Los Angeles, but it was also parade day. Twice a year, my neighborhood becomes a festival ground: once in the fall for Halloween, and again at the end of spring for Pride. 
But last year, parade day carried a reactionary feel. 


In the early hours of the morning, a gunman had entered Pulse, a queer nightclub in Orlando, Florida, killing 49 people and injuring many more.


My mom called, an hour or so before the parade start. “I want you to be careful,” she said. She didn’t tell us not to go. 

There were many tributes to the massacre and a defiant, electric air. 


This year we march for equality. 

Pulse will be on display as part of Gallery 825 and The Los Angeles Art Association’s special Out There show. Out There is an annual group show of works celebrating and speaking to queer culture. 


The painting is acrylic inks, sharpie pens, and white acrylic on paper, framed to 43×43 inches. $4,400
