"... artist Chuck Tingley has completed a mural titled "Voyage". The work is featured on the wall of Glow Gallery and In The Loop. The mural was inspired by people’s intrinsic nature to overcome adversity in the face of race and gender bias. The androgynous boater perseveres through life, as he/she is led by the light from a lighthouse that is synonymous with an "inner light." - "Allentown Exploits: A Mural and Windows… Lots of Windows" on Buffalo Rising, Aug 9, 2014 (online August 2014)
Note gay pride colors in flags and mural. The rainbow flag, commonly the gay pride flag and sometimes the LGBT pride flag, is a symbol of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) pride and LGBT social movements. It has been in use since the 1970s.
