The scent of lavender is a fragrant symbol of love and tranquility, and a gentle reminder of the tenderness that my partner and I share. In the shadow of history's injustices and the lingering echoes of prejudice, this piece is a testament to resilience, love, and the enduring power of queer identity.  The lavender scare, referenced by this art piece, is a reminder of the systematic oppression faced by queer individuals throughout history. Yet, amidst the fear and persecution, there exists a thread of defiance—a refusal to be silenced, a determination to love boldly and unapologetically. Through my art, I invite others to bear witness to the complexities of queer identity—to celebrate the beauty of love in all its forms, to challenge the status quo, and to stand in solidarity against oppression. For in the acts of love and creation, we reclaim our narrative, our identity, and our humanity.
