This piece incorporates taxidermy, religious iconography, Biblical verses, and news clippings to address ongoing violence and institutional prejudice against LGBQT persons. I've struggled with bringing this piece to fruition, as it demanded to be made despite my misgivings and hesitancy to make so bold a statement. I can only hope that it raises questions, inspires dialogue, and challenges assumptions.


(Special thanks to a dear friend who discussed the project at length with me, suggesting ways to make it more relevant to LGBTQ issues and concerns based on their own personal experience)
