Serge Gay Jr x Danny Nicoletta – Pride Month NFT Series
A San Francisco-based organization, Friends of Harvey Milk Plaza, is working to create a safe space for the LGBTQ+ community. Thus, it has partnered with Grammy-nominated artist Serge Gay Jr. and renowned photographer Danny Nicoletta.
The digital art NFT series created by the collaboration honors the legacy of Harvey Milk. Also, proceeds from the NFT auction will go to developing the redesigned Harvey Milk Plaza in San Francisco. It is an internationally recognized neighborhood for LGBTQ+ activism and the home of the late Harvey Milk.
The Pride month special NFT series auction starts on May 23, Harvey Milk Day, at 9:00 am ET. Also, the auction will continue until June 1, the start of Pride month, at 3:00 pm ET.
Meanwhile, the auction comprises two unique collections. The first one is from May 23 at 9 am ET through May 30 at 9 am ET. Accordingly, the second one is scheduled from May 25 at 3 pm ET through June 1 at 3 pm ET.
“As an artist, my strongest power is my craft, and I’m honored to lend that power to this movement and FHMP,” said Serge Gay Jr. “Digital activism, such as our NFTs, can be used to empower modern-day movements and create change. The fight for LGBTQ+ rights can often feel repetitive. Sometimes under the weight of all these attacks, it feels like we’re moving backward. We must fight to break the pattern.”
