commissioned by i heart and proctor and gamble as the artist gift for their can't cancel pride concert event, the matchstick is meant to represent how change begins with a single strike, with the torch of revolution passed between generations;  from elton john to brandi carlile, from melissa etheridge to adam lambert, from ricky martin to kim petras, there is a light that never goes out

can't cancel pride was born of the pandemic as a way to ensure the celebration and urgency of pride continued during uncertain and isolated times - the pandemic canceled many things, but not the gays; it was such a success, it is now in its 4th year and has raised over $12 million dollars for lgbtq+ charities
