I was inspired to create this postcard (60 inches x 22.5 inches and 11 inches x 4.5 inches) by the increasing hostile environment for LGBTQI people in Kansas. Very few towns and cities offer protection against hate crimes or discrimination. After moving to Kansas seven years ago, I was struck by how this state was, at one time, the seat of the Populist movement and more committed to progressive politics then it is today. Of course Kansas isn't the only place in the United States where LGBTQI citizens struggle for civil rights. However, Kansas is where I live now, and I wanted to create a postcard confronting circumstances here.
