Three wall-sized odes to marriage equality and pride sprang up in London, New York, and San Francisco at the beginning of Pride last weekend, and Russell Brand has been paying good money for your selfies in front of them. Brand, Daniel Lismore, Naomi Campbell, and more high profile activists, as well as fitness outfit Equinox, will donate £1 and $1, respective to your location, to LGBTQ charities The Pillion Trust and Hetrick-Martin Institute for every selfie taken in front of the mural through it's final day, July 4.
LA-based artist David Flores designed the larger-than-life couples, canoodling enthusiastically as rainbow colors blanket the background. Tag your selfie #poweredbypride on social media to earn money for at-risk LGBTQ youth, and show your pride. As Brand tells The Creators Project, “Pride for me is having the confidence to stand for what you believe in and be yourself.”
Friday's landmark Supreme Court decision to legalize marriage inspired a wealth of art and creativity, from rainbows flowing through the streets to Coheed and Cambria's song-ified rendition of Justice Scalia's various dissenting opinions. Check out Flores' work in the pictures and video below:
The full list of contributers to the #poweredbypride campaign includes Russell Brand, Laverne Cox, Kylie Minogue, Boy George, Jodie Harsh, Daniel Lismore, Mizz Kimberley, James Jackie, Jim Warboy, and Kid Massive. See more of David Flores' work on his website.
