Two Men Holding Hands at Mural NYC Subway Station



The sight of two men holding hands is far from uncommon, but a mural of two men doing just that is showing up in an unusual place — on the walls of a new subway station in New York City.

Experts say that depiction of love between gay men is a rarity in public art.

The men, Thor Stockman and Patrick Kellogg, are part of artist Vik Muniz's "Perfect Strangers," a series of life-size mosaic portraits of everyday New Yorkers gracing the walls of the new station at 72nd Street on the city's long-awaited Second Avenue subway line. It's scheduled to open Jan. 1.

Stockman says being featured is "like winning the lottery." But he says he wishes that it wasn’t such a rarity.
