A little background on Pride Portraits:
The organization was born out of response to the massacre at the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando. The mission of Pride Portraits is to visually represent the LGBTQIA+ community one photograph and story at a time. Citing visibility for the community as key to promoting its humanization, Pride Portraits post the photos from its shoots along with statement from each person based on the question: What do you want the world to know about you?
Since its inception, more than 3,000 people including LGBTQIA+ community leaders, politicians, and celebrities have participated in the Pride Portraits campaign and have contributed to the mission of LGBTQIA+ visibility.
You can learn more about Pride Portraits at the organization’s website: https://prideportraits.org
and you can also see examples of the portraits and statements on Facebook (https://facebook.com/PridePortraits/
) and Instagram (https://instagram.com/prideportraits/
