This is the second of three details that go along with the piece "Clocktower Nymphs." This one is a close up of the two men in the upper right hand corner of the full piece so if you have a problem with homosexuality don't click the view tab.  Naturally, this detail and the piece in general is supposed to be somewhat provocative.  You may notice a small amount of drawn in anatomy.  I didn't want the two men to be mistaken for anything else, so I incorporated this element to preserve my original intentions.  I feel like I'm getting a bit redundant, but this piece as a whole is a sort of a personal platform against censorship in america.  I guess the piece took on a life of it's own the day my sister and my mom decided that women who wear dresses that show their knees are somehow loose.  I argue that they are simply more comfortable with their bodies than most.  This particular part was just adding on to the bandwagon that gay people should not have to censor their lives so that their parents and the world at large can save face.  Do you know that in Turkmenistan and some other countries, gay people can still get life in prison solely for being openly gay?  It needs to change.  As does the american spin on censorship in general.  This is life.

Excellent drawing and I couldn’t agree with you more about what you said about it. Not only are there countries where you can get life in prison for being openly gay there are some where you can get the death penalty for being gay.
As a gay man myself I have experienced first hand the bigotry that some people have toward gay people. It’s nice to run across someone like yourself who is so open minded about people and life in general. Keep up the good work. 1
