I didn’t participate in pride this month, because I had a lot going on family wise. So, I’m grateful I was able to finish his project and meet a lot of new people and get to better know the people I already knew.
It was important for me to commemorate pride this year in some way. I knew I wanted to meet more people in the queer community that were close to me and around my age so that I could get a snapshot of what it means to be queer at our age. We are so incredibly diverse and different from one another, but I always find people in the LGBTQ+ community to be open. Each and every single person was kind and welcoming. They allowed me into their homes, their spaces with nothing but openness and I wanted to capture them the best I could.
Thank you to from top to bottom: Phoenix & Blake, Shae, Brenda, Bryan, Sawyer & Maverick.
