A Socially Distanced Pride
This year, we had to change quite a few things. Celebrating pride month during a global pandemic was one of those things. The goal of this project was to celebrate the diversity of pride while also staying safe. These images represent a much larger and much more diverse group of people that fall under the LGBTQIA+ umbrella and wanting to show their pride and celebrate the people who made sure that EVERYONE that falls under that umbrella can celebrate who they are.
Through this project, I met amazing people, heard amazing stories, and really understood what pride is all about; being able to be truly yourself to anyone you want to. With these images, one of my amazing models came out to their closest family members, and sharing that story with me was EVERYTHING I hoped to accomplish with this series. Being authentically YOU and being excited to show that to the ones you care about most.
