Spotlight: Art can welcome differences and travelers
On International Human Rights Day in December 2011, Hillary Clinton gave a landmark speech in which she urged global leaders to expand rights for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people.
Spurred by these remarks, local artist Emily Squires launched a month-long project. For 30 days starting Jan. 23, she created a poster a day, each a reflection on the LGBT issues.
Squires work is now pasted to the LGBT Center of St. Louis’ outside wall and on Saturday, The Growing American Youth organization will display more work by LGBT youth in the center from 3 to 6 p.m.
