Artist’s Description:

These two pieces are part of my series “Family Portrait” in which I portray all the men and women I am close to. As a gay man I needed to create my own “Family” and I decided to document it myself. These men are my lovers and close friends. This is my community, my family.

There are over 40 drawings in this series and these two of Frank and Luca, and Gary and Joe, are of couples who are friends of myself and my husband. They have both been together over 30 years!
