Last quote by Matthew McLendon

When I was growing up gay in rural Florida, there were no positive gay characters, and Madonna was the only one talking about it. If you just see work made by old dead white people, it has universal themes, but they are not necessarily accessible to you. But if you see the work of Mickalene Thomas, the African-American artist, it deals with the same themes, and it is an entree into the other work.feedback
