Why we love it

Devastating and uplifting in equal measure, Julian explores themes of love, commitment, activism and grief. The power of love in the face of hatred.


Fleur and Julian wanted to get married in all the countries where same sex marriage was legal. Julian died after their fourth wedding…

What started as a beautiful act of LGBTQ+ protest art quickly turned to tragedy when Belgian artist and activist Fleur Pierets suddenly and unexpectedly lost her wife Julian P. Boom to brain cancer. In 2017, the soulmates were embarking on a special project they had conceived – ‘Project 22’ – so named after the number of countries which had legalised same sex marriage at the time. With an ambitious plan to marry in every country on the list, the pair only managed to cross off New York, Amsterdam, Antwerp, and Paris, before Julian received her devastating diagnosis. Shortly after, she died.
