We had seen the stickers in cities around the globe during our travels and were excited to meet HOMO RIOT at Hôtel Gaythering's Art Gaysel. We are thrilled to be able to offer some collaboration tees and stickers celebrating "STONEWALL50" and supporting The Trevor Project.
From HOMO RIOT's site:
"I'm an artist living and working in Los Angeles.
The impetus for this body of work was the passage of Prop 8 in California in 2008. I took to the streets with an aggressive message of anger and anarchy, speaking directly to the population of LA by plastering images of homos and "homo love" on derelict buildings, utility boxes and construction sites all over the city. It was initially a "fuck you" to the general public for not supporting our rights, but it quickly became a message of positivity and support to the LGBTQ community. My goal was to add to the conversation around gay rights and gay pride and to expand the ideas of what it meant to be gay...
I continue to work in the streets of LA but I also do work in cities across the globe. From Barcelona to Bejing, New York to Buenos Aires and many cities in between, I strive to push my art and create dialogue around equality, gay pride and "homo love". B"
