"Noah’s Gay Wedding Cruise" is an original oil painting that represents my optimism about the marriage equality movement. I chose to symbolize our inevitable victory with my own version of the Noah’s Ark story, complete with happy gay and lesbian animal couples and a few human guests too (like Ellen Degeneres / Portia de Rossi, and Elton John / David Furnish). There are even some drowning sinners (such as Ann Coulter, Larry Craig, Ken Starr, and Fred Phelps)!
This special edition also includes a portrait of Joshua and Steve Snyder-Hill, the two founders of MarriageEvolved. Steve is the soldier who was booed during the Republican primaries last year after asking a question about Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. Together, he and Joshua have championed the cause of marriage equality, even fighting DOMA on the national level to establish equality for LGBT military spouses.
In June, my partner and I are participating in a special initiative by MarriageEvolved called the C-Bus of Love. Along with 24 other LGBT couples (who also can’t get married in their home states), we will be traveling by bus to Washington D.C. this June to get married on the steps of the U.S. Supreme Court.
100% of the profits from the sale of “Noah’s Gay Wedding Cruise: MarriageEvolved Edition” will be donated to MarriageEvolved to help pay for the C-Bus of Love trip and future advocacy work of the organization.

My painting The Dollypop Guild is based on the scene from “The Wizard of Oz” when Dorothy meets Glinda, only substitute a young boy in heels watching his idol, Dolly Parton, descend in a big pink bubble to welcome him to Dollywood!
