Being queer is still criminalized in 69 countries around the world. In Spain, the third country in the world to legalize homosexual marriage in 2005, LGBTQ+ people are still murdered.

This is my love letter to everyone who doesn’t follow the cis-heteronormativity that society imposes on us since birth.
