Tyler Gillespie

I didn’t want to get political but then Florida banned bodies and books politicians hadn’t read. They banned things we can think and say. A gay man who’s taught in the same FL school for decades told me it’s just too much. I don’t know the future of Florida, but I do know the state is my home, so I made this art to stand with banned bodies and books and all the fruits who think it’s just too much.
