I decided to do create an impactful art piece for this challenge under the "LGBT+" theme. Everything in this piece was hand-designed and animated by me; I did not use any templates, clip art, or animation makers. I used Affinity Designer to design the scene, Adobe Illustrator to make the rainbow flag, Adobe After Effects for the flag waving animation, and Adobe Photoshop to convert and export the video file into a GIF. It is also the first time I have made an animation before!

Portrayed in this simple and emotional animation is a group of evangelicals protesting a same-sex wedding in the distance. The most notable subject of this composition is a visibly distressed teenager in the back. He is seen holding a sign backward in the grass, which reads "GOD HATES FAGS," a common catchphrase of the infamous Westboro Baptist Church. In his left hand, he is holding a small rainbow flag waving in the wind behind his back so that the others cannot see; this indicates that he is a closeted member of the LGBT+ community. Sadly, he feels trapped, confused, and disgusted because of his position given that he grew up learning that a man or woman would be damned to hell for merely loving the same gender.
