In 2020, due to Coronavirus, parades, and get-togethers celebrating the L.G.B.T.Q.I.A.+ community are unable to happen to abide by social distancing rules. Amelie Strobl and I decided that it is still important to celebrate pride during this unprecedented time in history. We decided to celebrate pride through the medium we know the best, photography. 


This series of images celebrates the relationship and beautiful individuality of our friends, Caian and Timo. We asked them what words they have been called due to their sexuality, and we wanted them to reclaim them. We also wanted to celebrate their relationship and normalize relationships like theirs, as they are not equally represented in the media.
