We want to add a little bit of color to your morning! This bright and bold mural titled “Our Lives, Our Culture, Our Time” was painted by artist Gil Croy in 2012 as a symbol of love, peace, equality, and pride for Charlotte’s LGBTQ+ community. You can find this mural wrapped around the entirety of White Rabbit on Central Avenue in Plaza Midwood.
White Rabbit is an LGBT-centric store that sells books, cards, gifts, jewelry, and a wide array of other products that are perfect for anyone who wants to show pride in their sexuality, identity, or gender expression. It’s a place where everyone is welcomed and accepted, something that the world could use a lot more of these days.
The location is also home to the headquarters of QNotes, a bi-weekly newspaper that is one of the largest print publications in the Southeast reporting on LGBT news, arts, and entertainment. QNotes recently caught up with Gil Croy, the artist behind this mural, on his thoughts about COVID-19 and his artistic response to the pandemic. You can read it here.
