CHS Celebrates Pride Month

Too Gay The banner hanging from the CHS clock tower is the final project of one of our AP art history students, sophomore John Bell. 

In his words, “On the surface, society claims to accept gay people. But if we are flamboyant or very open about our gayness, are we 'too gay'? 

So, as an artist, I am basically challenging how people may view gay people, and also celebrating Pride month."

He continues, “In light of the Orlando shooting, the flag is here to remind us of the work we have to do and to celebrate LGBT people.” 

The project was conceived of and planned over several months.  It was hung this morning as had been arranged some time ago.
