dc.description.abstract I am for an art that will say I existed, that I was here. I am for an art that upsets and excites and makes you squirm a little from both. I am for an art that forgives the girls who broke my heart. I am for an art that reminds me to feel remorse about girls whose hearts I broke. I am for an art that says I am not afraid of hell. I am for an art that I will never be able to show my parents. I am for an art that states I have the right to love and be loved, despite what society has told me. I am for an art that says being raised Christian was a result of imperialism and colonialism. I am for an art that doesn’t negate my parents’ beliefs but rather makes a new space for my own. I am for an art that outs me. I am for an art that reminds me of how far I’ve come from the days I thought I’d have to lie about who I was forever. I am for an art that puts the girls my parents warned me about on a pedestal. I am for an art that reminds me of mornings in someone else’s bed. I am for art that reminds me of every person I have ever loved (cause you are in there, somewhere). I am for an art that comforts me about all the mistakes I made trying to figure out who I was or where I was going. I am for an art that reclaims everything I was told I could not have or be. I am for an art that tells others, “here is someone like me.” I am for an art that serves as a physical reminder to never let myself feel shame or self-hate ever again. I am for an art that reminds me that my identity and existence is something to be celebrated.
