Artists are important contributors to our world. In the midst of an unsupportive society that views most everything as a commodity, art is consistently passed over and not seen as what it is: a priceless aspect of healthy life.
Many artists can struggle to maintain a balance, perhaps most a balance of mental health. They need to be emotionally open in order to do their work. When artists are queer, processing events either via or in addition to their craft requires more time and love, for which our world makes little space. A plethora of potentially dangerous coping mechanisms are attainable fixes for a lack of support. Queer people often find themselves in a space where support— family— must be found. This is a depiction of that search.
