‘Proud Colours’ in Montreal’s Village.
I was invited by Daily Tour Les Jours in Montreal to participate in a project celebrating the diversity of the LGBTQ+ community.
The project involved weaving over 35 pride flags onto more than 150 tubular posters displayed on St. Catherine Street. The posters formed a timeline that began with the “Original Pride Flag” by Gilbert Baker in 1978 and progressed through each year until it reached the “Progress Pride Flag” by Daniel Quasar in 2020. The project aimed to showcase the evolution of the pride movement and celebrate the progress that has been made toward acceptance and equality.
Considering the discrimination the 2SLGBTQIA+ community faces, this timeline of the sexual and gender diversity flags, fluid and in movement, hopes to pay tribute to all the nuances in the Village. For those who don’t see themselves represented yet, we consciously left certain tubulars blank to inspire the emergence of new colours.
