“A commonly used statistic is that 1 in 3 people identify as LGBTQIA+. My piece is meant to express this statistic. I drew 9 people on a train, three groups of three people, but only one group has it’s 1 in 3 highlighted.

It also shows that, despite it not being obvious, there are others around you who may identify as LGBTQIA+ as well.”
