Every saint has a past and every sinner has a future
Oscar Wilde 

"Forgiven" is a collection inspired by the intersections of identity, faith, and acceptance. Many of us have had to navigate our early lives through the complexity of growing up queer within the embrace of the Catholic Church. This collection is a tribute to breaking free from the constraints of perfectionism and judgment. 

Being human involves embracing the duality that exists within us: the sinner and the saint. We must become our own saviors and challenge to break down the boundaries set between personal truths and institutional doctrines. Identity is a spectrum of experiences not bound by the rules of any book. 

Life is a constant journey through shadow and light. Through those contrasts we eventually find harmony. It is this harmony that shapes our narrative and becomes the testament to our resilience and growth.
