Gay Pride 2009


UPDATES:
when I first posted this the only comment I had in this section was that what you see above the "updates" text... nothing more... everything below this point has been added as a response to the opposition I've received since the day I posted it.
I'm not sure why this image has caused quite the stir it has while other images of Homosexual kissing found all over :devart: have not.
Know this... You WILL NOT break me! I will not bend to the demands of someone who thinks that Homosexuality is wrong and/or Immoral and should not be as openly expressed as heterosexuality is. If you want to try and have this image removed or censored... BRING IT ON! Others have tried and failed... you will too...
Your opposition only strengthens my resolve.

Hidden Comments Update

I hid all the comment's by [a :devart: member who will go nameless] and blocked him, I was tired of him constantly referring to homosexuals as unnatural, and equating homosexuality with bestiality and genetically deformed cats. while i can appreciate a good civil debate with just about anyone, this guy failed to support any of his arguments with fact and started to use this posting as a forum to engage supporters of my work (and/or homosexuality) in debates.

I'm not fond of blocking people, (to date I've only blocked 2 people) but this guy had gone to far... I warned him not to, but still he pushed... so i had to drop the hammer.

Lovely drawing. The right guy strangely reminds me of Gavin Waters though. Not sure why. Probably coz he's blond.

Anyway, sorry to know about your homophobic ordeal here. On the bright side, your art is viewed 21,630 times since 2009! I wish I had that many views!

I like this. I wouldn't necessarily have it as my wallpaper, but i appreciate the effort it must have taken to create this fine work of art. As for the artist of this, I have a great respect for you and am glad that not everyone is a box-minded person. I am not homosexual but even from my eyes this is a great masterpiece with such a strong message to it and leaves me with hope in people. Please keep up your outstanding work.

just thought id say, i really like this image, i think its really strong, has a very patriotic feel to it, i also like the fact that you portrayed two 'everyday' men instead of the common cliche of highly feminine boys, and being gay myself just wanted to say thank you for having such strong convictions and standing up for what you believe in.
