it will be 3 foto frames


The work I would like to present are 3 different cross stitch pieces with lesbian simbols to get people talking about lesbian history and knowing more about the things that have accompanied our fight over our rights. I will use cross stitch as many times this embroidery technique is not recognized as art, or as a tool for social chance. I on the other hand believe it is a great way to start conversations with mothers, children and other people that are not activists.
