Mural Title: Love Means No Gender

This mural represents a message of hope:  hope for acceptance, hope for a cleaner, less polluted future, hope for diversity, and hope for a better world to live in.

There are many symbols in this mural; the coexist logo that is spelled out by different genders, religions and identities with the melting earth symbolizing global warming. The different colored flowers that represent different pride flags are my favourite hidden message in this piece.  Each flower lei represents a different pride flag; Gay, Bisexual, Pansexual, Transgender, and Asexual.  Each ‘hidden message’ in this mural is there for a reason. I like to believe that this mural will carry on as a symbol of acceptance, diversity, love, and hope, even after I’ve graduated from high school.
