The San Jose Earthquakes and Adobe asked me to create a mural with the theme of “What does Pride mean to you?” I created the design to represent a flower arch to show how our queer ancestors fought for love equality. The signs represent how far we have come, but also the fight that we must continue of protecting trans youth and adults. The soccer balls represent different LGBTQIA+ flags and the flowers are the colors of the progressive flag. My partner and I are in the middle to show our respects to our queer ancestors and to celebrate our love out load. My partner is sporting the San Jose Earthquakes’ jersey to pin our location to my hometown of San Jose, CA.
A special thanks to the San Jose Earthquakes and Adobe for selecting me for this beautiful project and for giving me full artistic freedom throughout the creation of the mural. Another special thanks to Decca Design and San Jose Stage for taking care of me during the process of the mural.
