A queer take on the UBC Pride Installation

[ARCHIVE]

Selected quote: "Every time I pass the UBC Pride Installation, I am grateful for its existence. But I also can’t help but imagine what could have happened if a queer artist had designed it or if queer people had painted it — if queer labour had been paid and prioritized.
What would that have looked like?
Perhaps the same. But behind it would be us, painting a mural for ourselves, knowing that our university also values the work of our queer hands."
