From the artist, Naomi Devil:
My brother took me to a New Years Eve party at the end of 2017, where he mentioned that he might have gender-dysphoria. He said sometimes he wakes up and feels like a woman, other days he feels like a man. Right after that I created this painting titled Pride I. and another smaller scale work titled Pride No. 2. One depicts a lesbian pride protester, the other one a gay pride protester. To me, these are paintings of acceptance. In October 2018 my brother came out as transgender; she divorced her wife and now lives as a woman.
I decided to paint these paintings because I felt like there was something serious boiling under the surface. My parents didn't understand why I painted gay people with pride flags; I think they were worried about me and they had no idea about my brother. I only told my mum months later what my brother said, when signs started to be more and more obvious. When the news came, we were kind of prepared and not totally shocked.
