Out of the194 countries in the world, only 22 provided same-sex marriage at the start of this project. Meanwhile, 2 more countries joined the troops.
Naming our project 22 shows that the world is in constant movement.

We hope many, because this goes beyond being merely a work of art. 22 can raise levels of awareness that may lead to changing laws and giving people the equal opportunities they deserve.
