Roberto Cigna / Painting over the issue: Transgender in the military

View Portfolio

Roberto Cigna’s illustration is a sharp comment on President Trump’s recent ban on transgender individuals serving in the military.

The illustrator suggests that all Americans have the same rights–and duties–and that perhaps the president has forgotten that.

By showing the U.S. president painting the toenail of someone dressed in camouflage in his illustration, Cigna, with a disparity in size between a member of the military and Trump, brings attention to this compelling social issue.
