Peace and Love expressed by dancers Rachel Esteve and Antoine Hunter after DACP's 2012 Disability Pride Art and Culture Festival. Rachel and Antoine are standing side by side: Rachel, a young White adult, has her right hand in the form of a peace sign. Antoine, a Black male adult, is making the ASL sign for "I love you" with his left hand. Antoine's right arm is around Rachel, with his hand on her shoulder. They are both looking in the direction of the photographer and smiling. Rachel is wearing a black headband with a small pink bow in the shape of a bow tie. She has on black rimmed glasses and wears braces on her teeth. Her costume is a soft pink and peach colored loose dress, with a mottled pattern that is darker pink at the right and fades to soft peach toward the center. The neck is scooped, and the short sleeves are open at the shoulders. It is gently gathered at the waist. The dress is layered over a black sleeveless top and black leggings. Antoine has dreadlocks that stop at neck level. He has a goatee and moustache. He is wearing a black and gray tie-dyed shirt and black pants with blue stripes down the side. He is wearing a black leather necklace; the object hanging from the strap is not visible. He has two silver rings on the hand on Rachel's shoulder.
