The Queer Peacock
I am a graduate of chemical engineering. I am 22 years old. I am a craft enthusiast and love doing origami. I am a beginner in the field who had initially started with very basic origami and moved onto 3D origami gradually. I love trying new things with 3D origami and trying to make my artworks representative of something significant, to raise awareness and hopefully bring about a change.
The LGBTQIA community still remains a minority group in India that is frowned upon even in a year as advanced as 2021. My craftwork is a colorful peacock, having colours different from the actual colours of a peacock. Birds tend to signify a sense of freedom, and being the national bird, the peacock signifies India. The colours used are those that belong to the LGBT pride flag to ultimately represent an India that accepts the queer community for who they are and is proud of them like any other citizen. It is an attempt to spread an overall awareness and make people believe that it is good to be different and stand out be proud of who they are.
