What is Love? (White BG) by DarthSuki What is Love? (White BG) by DarthSuki
In efforts to help my school's GSA, I've designed this simple poster in efforts to help offer the simple truth that love will always be love, no matter the sex, gender, identity or orientation of the people in its powerful and passionate grip.

It's also the first poster design in my (Simple as That). series. I hope to create a further few more posters like this to help my school and community become more accepting and understanding of others.

And of course, others are more than free to use this poster in their own schools/communities; I simply ask that they contact me so I know what/where it's being used. I can send the full-sized design to you then.

Black Background Version Here

Inspired by Haddaway's song, "What is Love?"

Thanks c:> That's what I was going for.
As long you are adult, 'sane' and not related etc, why not love? regardless of the flavor?

Indeed... and Canada here is not always so much more open than our southern neighboors.
love is love no matter the censorship

I don't understand why you placed transgender individuals on an image about romantic relationships. It's not that I don't appreciate you attempting to be inclusive, it's just that if somebody is transgender, it literally has zero to do with their sexual preference. It seems really out of place, is what I'm saying.

Oh, I do understand that. I was just trying to include the idea that love doesn't have to come from the sex organs you are born with, as much as the ones you wind up being attractive to (You can be physically male, identify as a female, and fall in love with another male, or vice versa). More or less, it was easier to symbolize it like I did on the poster, than putting up the diverse possibilities you can get with something so fluid as gender identity and such. I completely understand what you mean, however c:

Oh, alright. JUST wanted to make sure you understood what it actually was; there's a lot of people out there who actually think transgenderism is the same kind of thing as being gay; that it's a sexual orientation or something.

Oh, I completely understand, as unfortunately true for some people as it is :U Sexual orientation and sexual identity are two very different subjects.
only thing I don't like about a lot of these pics is that they only show couples. I would love to see some that showed multi-partner relationships (mmf or ffm or ffmm or mmff, etc.)
