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.

I applaud you not only for your artwork.. But even more so.. I applaud you for having a backbone and respectfully confronting the opposition you've received!

Just as Michelangelo's "David" is still to this day BOTH.. A beacon of light to all searching for self identity and personal freedom.. AND.. One of the world's greatest weapon's against the hatred and demons of as "The Dark Ages".. So also I believe art work such as this leads to universal humanitarian civility for all!

this is amazing! i love the smudged oil paint look! it makes it seem almost dream like. i agree with u totally on the fact that people need to just wake up. people dont post hate comments on heterosexual coupling so why cant they just put up constructive comments on homosexual art. it just doesnt make sense to me. and this is really hot lol

its hard to beleive America calls itself #1 for freedoms and rights. For example; alot of people thought it would be great to have Hilary Clinton as president - that way we could show the world how cool we were... the funny thing is that PAKISTAN, a MUSLIM state has already had a female leader! gay marriages are already legal in many other countries. I guess the US is not really #1 in everything after all...

there will always be haters and I think its great that you are standing up for yourself and your rights!

Just as a suggestion, do you think it might be better to unhide some of the hidden comments here? I know they are nasty and rude and, you know, but I think it would be good for people to read it ... and understand your replies.

It gives an idea of what goes on, a bit. But, that's up to you, I wouldn't want to read that every time you visit your art.

sorry i took so long to reply to this comment, but i did put a lot of thought into the pros and cons of unblocking this particular individual's comments. to that end I've decided that showing his comments serve no purpose other then to potentially enrage the reader and invite equally disrespectful comments from the community directed at him. that's not what i want this posting to do...

furthermore, I've decided to hide my responses to him (most of them anyway). after all Violence only begets more violence. and the road to peace and understanding can only be paved with respect and kindness.

You know, I've been in love with this piece since it was FIRST put up back in ';Pride, and I can't see why in hell's bells it's been given so much opposition. There are pictures all over DA of much WORSE things than two men, shown from the waist up, kissing one another. It's immature for people to hate this so much, especially since the art and concept are so well carried.
Congrats on your resolve. Keep up the great work. :]
