Lou - The Art of Being Queer

Tonight's queer artist feature is Lou

My name is Lou (they/them/he/him) and I am a 22-year-old, queer, transmasc/non-bi-nary creator from Germany.

In my angsty teen years I got into classic art and literature. Surprisingly it is where I found what I was missing in my own surroundings and mainstream media: queer representation. . Seeing the proofs of queer existence and love through time helped me to come to terms with my own sexuality and gender experience.

If you look closely, history shows that queer people have always existed, mostly hid-

den or erased, though still present in art. In my illustrations I want to give queer bo-

dies a visible space, reimagining classical artwork without the restrictions of western idealization.
