License to Love. Texas artist Kiki Neumann created some Big Texas Love with her marriage equality graphic “License to Love” T-shirts commemorating the Supreme Court’s hearing of oral arguments for cases concerning the constitutionality of same-sex marriage on March 26 and 27. Neumann is a Houston folk artist who, for the last fifteen years, crafted useful items from found materials found on urban streets. Lately, her medium is license-plate art. “License to Love” T-shirts celebrate marriage equality. Proclaim your right to love at Pride this year! A portion of the proceeds from T-shirt sales benefit Equality Texas. T-shirts with this original design can be ordered online and are exclusively distributed by Suzette Cotto at createalovelylife.com.
