POSITIVE NEGATIVE

A virus cannot discriminate. It cannot be racist or homophobic or classist or ableist.

For the queer community, coronavirus is a grim reminder of the lingering AIDS epidemic. Another sickness that kills from the bottom while despots martyr us with inaction.

Queer and trans people survive not as individuals, but as a community. Our community is represented on this flag and on these walls. Our identities are art. Our pride is a revolution.

ウイルスに差別はない。人種差別主義者でもないし、同性愛者を嫌ったり、階級差別主義者でもなく、障害者を差別したりもしません。

性的マイノリティーにとって、コロナウィルスは、なかなか消えない辛いAIDSの流行を思い出させます。この病も、社会の底辺にいる人を死に追いやり、独裁者は病気で絶えず苦しむ私たちに何もしてくれません。

性的マイノリティーは一人にならないで、コミュニティーとして生き残れるのです。私たちのコミュニティーは、この旗と壁に象徴されています。私たちはアートでつながってます。革新を起こすことを誇りにしています。
