"Je t'aime": a French translation of "I love you." Destiny Slater identifies as bisexual; this piece expresses their desire for a “cheesy” romance with another feminine-presenting person. Both of them are signing "I love you" and "rainbow.” Their signs for “rainbow” merge to display the bisexual-pride flag. Even though there remains a strong Sapphic vibe to this illustration, Slater feels the importance of ensuring that bisexual people get more visibility.
