Chelsea Amato Queer Resistance Queer Resilience Sticker
Storytelling has become a crucial way for the LGBTQ community to see themselves in the mainstream media to advocate for LGBTQ youth. This Pride month, EOU is supporting LGBTQ artists and sharing their stories. We teamed up with runner enthusiast and store Runologie and did a call for artists for a fundraiser for the LGBT Center of Raleigh . After combing through all of the submissions, it is not hard to see why we fell in love with this design by artist Chelsea Amato Their story that accompanied the design sealed the deal!!!
ALL PROCEEDS GO TO: @lgbtcenterofraleigh
We are so thrilled to introduce you to CHELSEA AMATO!!!!!
“I am a queer artist with a focus on plants, energy work, social justice, and sustainability, based in Durham. My wife and I moved back to the triangle about three years ago because of the triangle's strong queer community. When living in NYC, I craved plant life and because I had less access to it, I began to sketch abstract plants daily as a way to combat depression. This shirt is an homage and celebration of the way plants can enhance and save lives. Just like plants, queers are both resilient and strong. Fighting oppressions also makes queer communities stronger in fighting for social justice. As a queer artist I feel it is my duty to educate others, and stand up for what is right.”
If there's one thing we feel pretty strongly that we all need to do right now, it's come together. Hoping this can serve as a mantra, a daily reminder, a little nudge when your babe is wearing it around town. Soft, lightweight heather oatmeal triblend onesie with screen printed hand-lettering. This lettering is a unique design, not a typeface.
