First of all, I would like to thank QAR for giving me the opportunity to say something, for giving me the opportunity to have my voice
But a special thanks to dakini and pebs who defended my fellow GenQ artists and our work.
My dear boyblue (whose very name suggests ganymede-like worship from an individual I assume is not a youth) does not seem to understand that as part of a generation who has no major centre of culture as my parents did (the cold war, the vietnam war, the me decade(s)), I am a purveyor of my own postmodern universe and I will bring it about and show the world what I see as much as possible in as many ways as possible. This expo has only been the beginning of my generation's musings, please, support us and let us possess the hope we are destined to attain and maintain.
This is for "my name" who wished for more gay youth. Your wish will come true with works like these. We have hope, even though our images may seem bleak. If we did not have hope, we would not cry out. Soon, all we will need to do to be heard is whisper. The world will be quiet and we will listen to it.
With love to all,
