I am delighted to hear that my artwork “Constant” sold on the night of GLAAD Art Charity Auction in New York City at Metropolitan Pavilion on Sunday November 18, 2012. I am very happy to say that 100% of the proceeds go to GLAAD for the continued support of understanding equality in this world.
Thank you to the man who bought my artpiece. I hope you will enjoy this piece for years to come and beyond. Also thanks for supporting not only a wonderful charity event, but also for the arts.
What is GLAAD?, you ask?
This below section is credited to GLAAD as it is copied and pasted from their website:
“For over 25 years, GLAAD has worked with news, entertainment and social media to bring culture-changing stories of LGBT people into millions of homes and workplaces every day.
Why? Because words and images matter.
What people see in the media has a huge impact and GLAAD ensures images of LGBT people and allies grow acceptance, understanding and build support for equality.
GLAAD as a Storyteller
GLAAD moves people. By combining our expertise and resources, GLAAD amplifies the voice of our community to keep equality at the forefront of America’s cultural conversation. Our impact on newspapers, magazines, blogs, radio, television, movies and more transforms attitudes to bring about real change.
GLAAD as a Watchdog
GLAAD creates change. We hold the media accountable for the words and images they produce. When media is used as a platform to defame and stereotype LGBT people, GLAAD takes action. We leverage 25 years of media relationships and countless hours of media advocacy to send important messages against homophobia and discrimination.
GLAAD as an Advocate
GLAAD unites the movement. We strengthen grassroots organizations so they can leverage media, engage local communities, and advance social change. Right now, GLAAD is working with local organizations in more than 30 states to build support for equality. This collaboration with LGBT leaders and advocacy groups is key to increasing the visibility of our community, changing hearts and minds, and securing full and lasting equality.”
