Artist's Statement

The image is part of The National LGBT Visual Documentation Project and were taken during the National Equality March in Washington D.C. on October 11, 2009.  The project’s mission is to create important and relevant new imagery of the grassroots political power of the LGBT community and to document the visual history of LGBT activism. The National LGBT Visual Documentation Project seeks to highlight the ordinary people who have been thrust into activism in response to the outrageous discrimination they have faced. These personal stories and the faces of real people will serve to inspire new generations of activists and educate the general public about how discrimination affects real people. Preserving and presenting these images will enrich the institutional memory of the LGBT movement and ensure that the sacrifices made by so many in this fight are not forgotten once equality is achieved.
