Gay Gingko Grows

All handmade gingko leaves made for the 2022 Summer Queer Ecologies art showcase collaboration with Bartram’s Garden and William Way Community Center. Gingko trees have been around since the Jurassic era, survived fires after the 1920s Tokyo earthquake as well as survived the atomic bombs of Hiroshima. Gingko trees have no trouble living in urban environments, supply medicinal remedies, make good bookmarks that protect books from silverfish and booklice. Queerness is embodied in nature and also remains resilient like the Gingko trees no matter the current colonial human created crisis. The variety of gay flags with beaded details are the seeds for the opportunity to grow in a respected environment. This is Gay Gingko Grows.
