The inspiration of this artwork was Marsha P. Johnson and her contribution to the Stonewall Riots. This was linked to the characters of Shakespeare’s ‘Twelth Night’. Gender and LGBTQIA+ rights were topics Shakespeare wrote about often and even today equality and femininity are topics I wish to include in my work.
