Dear Artist welcome in the featured themes section. Starting from June we will choose every month the most relevant events in the world and we will suggest and encourage you to create artworks whose themes will be based on those great events.
Creating those artworks will help you gain much visibility as an artist, as we will sponsor your artworks in the countries where the events will take place so thousands of people will see them.

The annual Pride Celebration commemorates the rebellion of LGBT patrons of the Stonewall Inn in New York City’s Greenwich Village in response to a routine police raid on June 27, 1969. Since its modest beginnings, San Francisco Pride has grown to be one of the largest and most well-known Pride events in the world. Pride has come to symbolize several things: the long history of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, everyone’s right to meaningfully and proudly express their sexual and gender identities, and the commitment of LGBT people to fight oppression. From this history of rebellion grew the mission of San Francisco LGBT Pride: “educate the World, celebrate our culture, commemorate our heritage, and liberate our people”.
The rainbow flag, commonly known as the gay pride flag or the flag of the LGBT pride, is the symbol of pride and LGBT social movements. The colors reflect the diversity of the LGBT community and also represent a symbol of peace. The use of the rainbow flag originated in the San Francisco Bay area is now widespread all over the world.
