Balaclava Q

Having made links and friendships with artists online who, in various countries, are making strong and bold statements in queer art, yet, for their own personal protection, or desire, choose to, or must, remain, anonymous because they desire anonymity, or because of censorship by governments tied to fundamentalist religious doctrines.  Due to this largely global predicament, which fills my own political and aesthetic desire to, put it bluntly, do something!  I asked myself: Is there a safe space online that is dedicated to showing queer art while simultaneously providing the means for such artists to connect and become inspired reciprocally?  This was the starting point for Balaclava.Q

I'm honored to be a part of this online exhibition:https://balaclavaq.wordpress.com/2016/10/20/artist-matt-pipes/
