Why/how art helps LGBT+ community?

Art can do many things, you can use it to express your personal feelings, or you can apply art on discussing world issues. From doing about oneself to the whole world, and even beyond. Therefore, can art also be an aid for people?

The above is the opening I want to write and I will keep altering throughout the research project.

Moreover, I think more about a comic book I bought which contain many artists to support the mass shooting in gay club in Orlando during June 2016. It is possible for a reason and an example that how art and graphic novels that could help the LGBT+ community.  According to the Washington Post, the comic book, LOVE IS LOVE, became the bestseller list in the New York Times. Also, it raised more than $165,000 to support the victims of the Pulse shooting. (Michael 2017)
