Pride is an important time for the LGBTQ community. I’ll be going along and working with three groups that I like to support with photographic help – Cincinnati Men’s Chorus, Cincinnati HRC, and Cincinnati GLSEN. All of these are very worthwhile groups indeed. Visibility is really important, as you have seen me write about before, because it is only by being visible that we can move forward in any way. Yes I know that some people have issues with the whole pride thing, and many see it as just a big party these days instead of a political thing. But can’t it be all of these? I think so, and I for one am grateful for the opportunity to be able to hold pride festivals when so many places around the world cannot.
So happy pride to you all!
