Artist’s Description:

 “In 2005 I was as an extremely self abusive, gay man in the Bay Area seeking (among other things, and like most others) social well-being. From self-inflicted, murky circumstances the “500 Kings in 500 Kingdoms” art project emerged and became a quest for personal renewal, and in fact, a ‘tool to survive’ the labyrinth of modern gay life. My intention is to emphasize the value of self-simplifying what was my priggish mind that consistently justified self-protective ideologies that separated me from the “One People”, “One World” sensibility. My “Guide for Queer Survival”
