Designed award for @cocnl to celebrate their 75th anniversary. A new generation of LGBTI activists and role models. With these Stars of the Future they want to commit themselves in the coming decades to a world where everyone is free to be themselves.
When I heard the words connection, I immediately thought of 2 hands that are intertwined. Holding hands can express affection, comfort, warmth, pain relief, security, psychological closeness, and empathy. If you look closely, the shape of these hands form a star.
After doing some research, I found that holding hands lowers cortisol by making the other person feel happy and connected. It sends signals to the person’s brain that there is less danger in a perceived threat.
A beautiful symbol of remembering and carrying all the heroes who have been before us and to take these wisdoms with us into the future.
