Description of Submission:
Two brides share their first kiss as beloved wives.  This piece was for an assignment for my high school art class.  We had to take a quote and either show a reaction or a solution to it and somehow incorporate puzzle pieces to show how each of us plays a part in solving the issues of today.  I chose a quote by Paul Cameron, "Homosexual unions are not based around lifetime commitments. "  As you can see, I showed how wrong he was.  The rainbow puzzle pieces around the border show how each of us, whether gay, bi, straight, questioning, etc., can join together to end homophobia." - Lauren

Biography: Laura will be attending University of Pennyslvania.  She is looking to major in Spanish to be an interpretor.  In her spare time, she likes to do various drawings.

Why Karen and Melody Liked It:   We liked how she took a popular every day phase and was able to depict it with a loving gay relationship.
