John Webster Illustrates the Queer Point of View on Catholic School Funding

John Webster created these graphic, punchy images for a three part article on Catholic School funding in Xtra magazine.  John describes his thoughts behind the images: "Since the article was about Catholic education and the monies they receive, I wanted to use the money sign for each of the three illustrations.  It becomes part of the character's face (see illustrations 1 & 2)  and replaces a cross on the rosary worn by the nun (illustration 3). To illustrate how the Catholic schools will not allow queer kids to have a voice, I used the classic pink triangle symbol in all three illustrations. We see the symbol being destroyed in the first illustration, being worn proudly as a belt in the second and in and amongst the "taboo" words in the third."
