Caitlyn Jenner is the subject of a series of "Simpsons"-inspired art pieces by Italian artist and activist aleXsandro Palombo. The series is called “Call me Wonder Caitlyn,” E! News reported. Palombo shared several of the images on his Facebook page, with each inserting Jenner into the world of Homer, Marge and Bart.
Palombo "focuses on the rights of Transgender with his irreverent and satirical style," his team said in a statement. Several images include recreations of Jenner’s famous Vanity Fair cover, including one in which Homer Simpson is shown flipping through the magazine as the back cover reads, "Meet single transgender women looking for men."
Another art piece shows a happy Homer lying in bed with Jenner, with the brunette’s magazine cover on the wall behind them. There’s also a motivational image of Jenner as Wonder Woman, promoting “Trans Rights Now!”
According to Britain's Metro, Palombo chose Jenner as his subject to address the marginalization of the transgender community. “Nowadays, transgender citizens are still marginalized and forced to live in a very difficult social situation,” he explained. “They are victims of prejudice, discrimination and in many cases criminalized and victims of violence. Despite all of this, the policy of many countries continues to be deaf in front of their rights. We must fight this medieval prejudice and intolerance because everyone deserves to live with dignity and lead a life that match their own sexual identity.”
In May the artist created celebrity-inspired cartoons to raise breast cancer awareness, states the New York Daily News. They included “cartoon beauty icons” like Disney princesses and Betty Boop, who portray cancer survivors with "hope, beauty, and courage." Palombo wanted to show how "no one is immune to cancer," so he depicted Marge Simpson with one healthy breast and the other removed -- with stitches left behind.
Palombo previously created cartoon images of various celebrities and events, such George and Amal Clooney's wedding, Kate Middleton and her royal fashion, and even Caitlyn's family members, Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West.
