Artistic Equality

LGBT community members are incorporated into art and marketing without shame

Implications - Evolving the notion of sexual preference in society, artists and brands are incorporating members of the LGBT community without explanation for a more passive, accepting form of activism. By not acknowledging the perceived difference between gay and straight, brands and artists are reinforcing a 21st century aesthetic that's less about equality and more about normality for a relaxed attitude that grabs attention for being 'normal.'
