I have an impossible dream

I have an impossible dream of attending a Yeshiva.
Of studying centuries’ old text 8+ hours a day.
Of picking apart, debating, and then picking apart again our canon with close colleagues.
I have an impossible dream of immersing my entire life in Torah.
Of taking my learning outside.
To share what I know with others.
I have an impossible dream,
But I’m still aching to try.

Canadian Transgender artist Joey Dean paints bold emotional abstracts that warp reality. His pop-surrealism expresses a sadness’s and bittersweet nostalgia for growing up LGBTQ+ in a place where he didn’t exist. He strives to advocate issues within his community such as acceptance over tolerance, supporting victims of violence, and the intersections of mental health and being *Queer.
