The 2014 Olympics are coming up and they are taking place in Sochi, Russia! I love the winter Olympics. I think ski jumping is my favorite sport to watch, closely followed by bobsledding.
On a more serious note, Russia is banning all propaganda that supports homosexuality. This means anything that supports LGBTQ athletes will be punishable by law. While LGBTQ athletes are still able to compete this is a hinderance to their performance. To support those affected, a friend of mine, Kyle Franklin, is doing an online art project for the 2014 Winter Olympics called Golden. His project is based on propaganda that will be band at the Olympics and gives support to the LGBTQ community. Anyone is allowed to submit their posters to the project. Please check it out!
This poster is my contribution to the project.
