Today the Supreme Court votes on the constitutionality of Prop 8 in California. For those like me that don’t speak “news,” that means will you be able to marry if you are gay and have equal rights.
Equal rights, my ass!!!!!!!!! Until people admit that homosexual thoughts enter their brains from time to time (whether or not they intend on acting upon them), we will never be free. Think for yourself and don’t rely on the government for your happiness!

Bashback by Homo Riot
LA! Save the date. October 22, 2011 from 7 – 11 pm. New works by Homo Riot will be on display at his latest exhibit entitled “Fist Pump” at Hold Up Art (located at 358 East 2nd Street) in Los Angeles.
Homo Riot’s message started out as a “fuck you” to the supporters of Prop 8, but has morphed into something larger and more profound. Seen now as an emblem of pride and strength to the gay community, Homo Riot’s work has become a line of communication to young gays who feel that they’ve been shunned by mainstream society and a call to action for silenced and closeted gays.
“The work in this show explores the dichotomy between the often hidden and dark realms of gay life and the simultaneous desire for visible exuberance,” says Homo Riot of Fist Pump. “In these pieces, the fusion of these disparate concepts leads to awkward explosions of ‘pride’ and naïve outbursts of youthful anger and rage.”
The exhibition at Hold Up Art follows the month-long Global Homo Riot, a subversive campaign throughout Septemberwith the goal to increase visibility of homosexual imagery, to spur conversation and awareness about issues facing homosexuals around the world, and to engender pride and hope in young gays. Artists from around the world have requested Global Homo Riot “kits,” which contain posters, stickers and stencils with instructions on how and where to apply the artwork to make a statement in their own communities.
Participants who registered for the Global Homo Riot campaign include artists from major metropolitan areas like New York, Los Angeles, Dallas and Miami, as well as from smaller communities like New Haven, CT; Richmond, VA; Jacksonville, FL; San Jose, CA; Carmel, IN; and Rossford, OH. International participants have registered from Paris, London, Athens, Berlin, Sydney and Barcelona.
Homo Riot’s bold imagery and social message have established him as one of the most provocative and inspiring street artists in the United States.

Freedom! Homo Riot at the Statue of Liberty
Artist Homo Riot is working on one of his most ambitious projects ever – The Global Riot. Homo Riot asked fans to participate in a month long world takeover whereby interested parties were sent stickers and wheat pastes to put up in their cities. If you’ve been following Homo Riot on Twitter or checking his official site, you already know that photos have been sent in from all corners of the world. The goal is to bring, peace, love and tolerance and also cool photo ops! I did my part as you can see above and below. The above picture is at a fake statue of liberty and below, another fake symbol of freedom – The Empire State Building. Team Homo!
