"I don't want to spoil all the fun by writing something artificial here. I'd like you to read my poster yourself. I will say that I like to bring together diverse elements; that goes for the content as well as the techniques used for the imagery: spray paint, Xerox, and 5" wood type printed letterpress. The poster was inspired by a lunch date with a new co-worker; we were going to lunch together only because we were both gay, and that bothered me. The words 'I'm Queer So What?' (with "queer" upside down) are printed letterpress. The rest is offset [...] Cross Pollination, the Woman's Building exhibition catalog, 1986. p. 6. Part of Cross Pollination - a series of 20 posters from the Woman's Building, Los Angeles. A brochure on the series can be found in Acquisition File 1991-53
