*******UPDATED APRIL 20TH********
Once again,a suggestion that didn’t come from me ended up winning the poll, which I think is totally awesome! Also, a big thank you to everyone who participated, as well as to anyone who just came to check it out! ^_^
NATNOTE: This comic-strip was inspired by a real-life occurrence.
Once again there was two winning entries, and I have to say that I really struggled to find a resolution that included them both, but I think I came up with a good compromise.
Also, a huge thank you to everyone who voted, talked about it, or just came to check it out. ^_^
NATNOTE: This morning’s sunrise was a half-sunrise, so [ YOU ]’re in the clear. It’s only when it’s a full-sunrise that [ YOU ] turn into a were-rooster.
So, it looks like we won’t be boycotting the upcoming 2014 Sochi Olympics. Bummer. But, why would we? With all that gender-segregated, celebration of the different aspects of the human body, the Olympics are already very, very, gay.
So I’ve been thinking, we need to come up with a universally recognized gesture that symbolizes support for LGBT people, in Russia, and around the world. Something that athletes can do at the games if they want to show support for us in a non-verbal way. A “Queer Salute” if you will. Something we can also use once the games are over too.
So, I`m holding a poll on the subject. And, in no particular order, here are some potential choices:
OPTION-A ” LIMP-WRISTED ”
OPTION-B, ” I heart PINK TRIANGLE ”
OPTION-C Sign Language for the “G”
A write-in suggestions with a certain flair.
OPTION-D The Japanese gesture
Another stylish write-in option.
OPTION-E The Write-in. You send your sketch or pic, with the title of your pose to: firstname.lastname@example.org
So yeah, here’s the poll: ^_^
AH! So the option for the “I heart pink triangle” won the vote, and it’s now the official T4D queer salute for the Sochi Olympics! Which is very cool! A lot people suggested doing it with a downward pointing triangle instead, so here is the final updated version of “I heart PINK TRIANGLE”:
NATNOTE: The models were rendered as art-store mannequins in a vague effort to keep it gender-neutral. :)
