Police Night Out

This was for a story about how there has been a series of police raids in Seattle gay clubs by law enforcers.

It's a little too close to the Stonewall Uprising in the 60's and I naively thought we'd be past that. Anna Goodson at the agency is very passionate about LGBTQ+ injustices and this illustration could have easily been an upsetting image but I thought it best to satirise and take the power out of the bullies. If you want to make a story powerless my tool of choice is ridicule and I thought what would homophobes hate? They'd probably hate being gay.

Law enforcers shouldn't need to pretend and look for excuses to go into a gay club anymore. It's 2024.
