Same Love by Beau Preston I’ve been following the blog of Australian graphic artist, Beau Preston, and I wanted to repost his awesome drawing, Same Love. Nothing says same-sex marriage like storm troopers who are soul-mates. Same Love by Beau Preston. via Same Love. AdvertisementShare this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading...
I’d just like to thank you for the repost. I’m glad to see appreciation for the drawing but more importantly the issue it raises.
As someone in Canada legally married to my same-sex partner, I’m always very happy to see support from straight allies. One of the reasons I love this image is it takes such a familiar icon and makes a very adorable and cheeky statement about same-sex partnership, creating an image that people who otherwise never thought about it can maybe relate to.
When my wife and I visited friends in Melbourne last September, positive change was definitely in the air. Keep up the great work and thanks for lending your voice to the cause!
I think you nailed this drawing perfectly. I couldn’t of described it better myself.
In regards to change in Australia, at the moment it isn’t looking to happen anytime soon. Although a majority of people are in favour, in our upcoming election, one party has promised to legalise same-sex marriage while the other wont even acknowledge it. Sadly, according to all the polls, the party against same-sex marriage is clearly in front. This doesn’t mean we wont get equality, rather we’re going to have a huge battle ahead of us.
