01 May Hiromi Uehara, Piano Woman
I’ve made this picture for an art exhibition opportunity for a Hungarian lesbian organization, LABRISZ. This work is about the fantastic Hiromi Uehara, she is one of the best piano players who ever lived on this planet. I’ve just wanted to support every women, because I’m against of every way of discrimination.
Yesterday I got a phone call from them and they said they liked this work very much and wanted to exhibit my work. After they started asking about my gender (because they saw my name). They only wanted to know if I’m a transsexual or not. After I said I’m not, I’m a heterosexual male, they refused my work to exhibit. I thought that is good idea if man supports lesbian women, but they thought my gender isn’t appropriate for supporting them.
They didn’t indicate in the tender, that they don’t want men to submit art. So I made the picture to support them. They also said that my work is good for their exhibition, but after they got know my sex, they refused to exhibit my work. As it turned out now, it wasn’t a really good idea to support lesbian women in an artistic way.
Besides Hiromi and her music are beautiful and I don’t know and don’t want to know anything about her sexual identity.
