New York City’s newest subway line is here to inspire change in more ways than one.

After nearly 100 years of discussion, the city’s 2nd Avenue Subway line became a reality on New Year’s Day, giving commuters much more than alternate transportation routes. The stations features installments from artist Vik Muniz’s project Perfect Strangers, a series of life-size mosaic portraits of everyday New Yorkers.

Amongst the beautifully intricate artwork depicted on the walls of the station is a mural of two gay men — an IRL married couple — holding hands.
