The clashing colors, patterns and fabrics you see in Alexander Hernández’s (@hernalex_art) work are no accident — they represent the patchwork of the artist himself. “I like to mix different things together because that’s kind of my identity,” says the San Francisco-based textile artist and social worker. “I’m Mexican, but I also grew up with American pop culture. So, I’ve always been interested in edgy patchworks, in mixing patterns that shouldn’t work together, but do.” The metaphor extends to how Alexander hopes Pride celebrations continue to grow in acceptance of everyone’s patterns of identity. “We might not all see eye to eye,” says Alexander, “but being aware and supportive of each other is a start.” It’s June, and in many countries that means it’s time to celebrate #Pride2017. All month long, we’ll be sharing stories from diverse LGBTQ community members from around the world, like Alexander. Watch our Instagram story now for a look inside Alexander’s studio.

Love frees you - and you should love freely! PRIDE is upon us and whichever color it is in the rainbow that we represent, LGBT or straight, if we embrace individuality and give mutual respect, we can make the world more beautiful. #FREELOVEph #lovewins #Pride2017 #HereTogether #TogetherPH www.HeadshotClinic.com www.Zalora.com.ph/FREELOVEph
