The Important Thing is not…

This broadside was the result of an ‘ambush’ opportunity during Pride Week 2014, where students can ‘have a go’ at printing. The quote is taken from American writer, intellectual, and all-round polarising individual, Gore Vidal (1925-2012). Vidal refused to pigeonhole people with the words ‘heterosexual’ or ‘homosexual’ and the quote seems apt to use in Pride Week. The use of ink colour to produce a rainbow effect, a visual emblem of the LGBTQ community, is also apt.
