My identity as an LGBTQ person

Stamatis Kyriakos presents the reality of a gay man through his autobiographical work. He aims to show that his daily life is no different from others and believes it is crucial to express LGBTQI+ issues through his art. He strongly believes that many LGBTQI+ individuals face stigmatization, discrimination, and unequal opportunities in both their socio-economic life and love life. Stamatis courageously opens up a dialogue with those willing to speak openly about the issues facing the LGBTQI+ community, including viewers of his artwork. He recognizes the difficulty of freely expressing one’s sexuality or gender identity and hopes to promote greater acceptance and understanding through his work.
