Keith Haring

In the 1980s, during the heightened discrimination, prejudice and oppression against the LGBTQ+ community, Keith Haring opened up about being a gay man. He also worked as an artist in the LGBTQ+ community and carried out awareness-raising activities, aiming to promote a correct understanding of HIV/AIDS and the visualization of the LGBTQ+ community.
