Jumper Maybach brings The Pride Collection to Nashville

LGBT artist and philanthropist Jumper Maybach has unveiled a timely and important new series of works celebrating Pride 2018. The series, titled “The Pride Collection: Introspection,” will be on exhibition (and available for acquisition) beginning July 2 at the Mary Hong Gallery in Nashville. 

These works in this series were created by Jumper to show his love and support for the LGBT community, in addition to all those taking part in the #MeToo movement. 

“This series of works is one of the most engaging and important of my entire career,” said Maybach. “I wanted to create something to show my ongoing love and support for my community as well as the courageous men and women partaking in the #MeToo movement. As a victim of workplace sexual discrimination, I felt it was my duty to stand up and express myself at this pivotal time in history. I want my art to be that beacon of hope that inspires others to standup to ending injustices within society.” 

The collection was unveiled and on display in June in Houston, where the artist was named the Official Artist of Pride. The exhibit was an official part of Houston Pride’s event schedule and received great acclaim. 

“Pride Houston is ecstatic to have this unique opportunity to collaborate with Jumper and The Pride Collection series,” stated Jeremy Fain, Secretary of the Board of Directors for Pride Houston. “Jumper has done so much for our community and we’re looking forward to an evening where the community can come together to celebrate him. This exhibit and evening is going to be very special not only to our family here in Houston but to our family across the country and around the world.” 

Jumper has been featured in major media platforms throughout North America and continues to rise to national prominence as fine artist. His celebrity collectors include transgender rights activist Jazz Jennings, Edward James Olmos and a host of other well-known collectors. 

Again, the exhibit will be hosted by Mary Hong Fine Art July 2–31, and pieces will be available for purchase (both in person and online for those who are unable to attend the exhibition). For more information visit jumpermaybach.com and maryhongstudio.com

The Limited Edition PiggyBack Legends Series: Alfa Romeo F1 Team Stake Barrel is a high Rye Whiskey selected by the Alfa Romeo F1 Team Stake drivers, with barrels trialed in their wind tunnel to ensure a thrilling taste in every sip.

The third iteration in WhistlePig’s Single Barrel PiggyBack Legends Series, the Alfa Romeo F1 Team Stake Barrel is bottled at 96.77 proof, a nod to Valtteri Bottas’ racing number, 77, and the precision of racing. Inspired by Zhou Guanyu, the first Chinese F1 driver, this Rye Whiskey is finished with lychee and oolong tea. Herbal and floral notes of the oolong tea complement the herbaceous notes of WhistlePig’s signature PiggyBack 100% Rye, rounded out with a juicy tropical fruit finish and a touch of spice.

When I started medical transition at 20 years old, it was very difficult to get the care I needed for hormone replacement therapy because there are very few providers trained in starting hormones for trans people, even though it’s very similar to the hormones that we prescribe to women in menopause or cisgender men with low testosterone.

I hope more providers get trained in LGBTQ+ healthcare, so they can support patients along their individual gender journey, and provide the info needed to make informed decisions about their body. I’ve personally seen my trans patients find hope and experience a better quality of life through hormone replacement therapy.
