HIV memorial monument - Dublin
« on: December 05, 2023, 01:39:08 pm »
The 'Embraced Loop' monument was unveiled in Dublin this past weekend. I could not go during the weekend, but I'm going to see if I can go and have a look this upcoming weekend.

I think it looks good.

to express solidarity with everyone who has been affected by HIV and AIDS. It was also created to remember those who have died and celebrate their lives and the people who supported them.

Ohhhh I like it! Take pics (I know that you will)

Ps- it’s not horrible like Boston’s “The Embrace” monument which this year debuted to very mixed feelings.

Had to google it. Hmmm... I get the idea behind it but looking at the pictures, I think I like the HIV & AIDS monument in Dublin looks better.

Agreed. I feed the squirrels at The Common where the Embrace is located so I see it every week, and well, it is certainly a monument that they built....

Palm springs memorial anus
OMG LOL

Quote
The sculpture, standing at nine feet tall, features a round limestone structure with concentric carved circles, symbolizing the diverse impact of AIDS on the community. Its design is intended to evoke feelings of connection, reflection, and hope. However, not everyone is on board with this artistic vision.

"It's really strained. I mean, it's almost like a piece of art looking for a purpose, instead of the other way around. It could be about anything, and as a consequence, it's kind of about nothing," Clay Sales said.
connection, reflection, and hope? It's a doughnut.....from the front side. LOL I certainly don't get the feelings the designer hoped. However, I can't imagine how approval ever got through looking at the backside. Why doesn't it look like the other side? It's not even subtle; but looks like a joke a bunch of queens got to play on the public. LOL

We were standing all alone
You were leaning in to speak to me
Acting like a mover shaker
Dancing to Madonna then you kissed me
And I think about it all the time
