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 slurs they have been called regarding their sexuality, and we wanted them to "embrace" them. We also wanted to celebrate their relationship and try to aid the effort in normalizing gay relationships as they are not equally represented in media.
