The Ghosts Of My Ancestors Live On In Me Enamel Pin

£8.00 - £9.00

Who are we? Where do we come from? How much of us is handed down through our bloodlines - what is similar between us and a distant relative who died centuries before we were born?
Are these similarities learned behaviours, or in our DNA or is it something more spiritual - are we being guided?

I also think its more than just blood relations, I wonder about the people we admire or look up to, I often think how much of who I am now is because of the books or the films I indulged in while growing up, and how much of my identity and the way I move through life is down to those who lay the groundwork for my rights as a gay man or as a trans man.

After all, I can exist openly because of the people who worked, fought, bled, and died for my rights. Do I not carry some of their spirit with me?

This hard enamel pin measures 49mm at its largest point and affixes at the back with two rubber clasps. As with all of my pins it comes with its own unique backing card.

Buy it on its own or with a matching 10cm vinyl sticker
