My work circles around issues the LGBTQ+ community have, mostly including how they can be scared to enter busy areas in case they get judged or even encountering people that think they can “change their minds”. Instead of showing it through human eyes I decided to use my own original characters to show the story as not only was it easier for me to draw them but it was also an opportunity for me to flesh out their characters. Whilst my final product had to be cut short I am still proud of it and I hope it will be able to open other people’s eyes and help show them the reality a lot of people in this generation have to live with.
