Our mission is to visually represent the LGBTQIA+ community and its allies one photograph and story at a time. Visibility for our community is key to promote the humanization of a community that is dehumanized every single day. Pride Portraits is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
Pride Portraits has adapted to the times. In an effort to continue our work in a COVID-19 world, we will be photographing people in public, outside or in a place they feel comfortable.
At this time the backdrop that has been used in 6K portraits is being housed at our headquarters and will be used on occasion when larger events are safe.
The campaign is comprised of two parts. A statement and a photograph. Click on the following photographs to view the participants statement.
“My name is Cleve Jones and I live in San Francisco, California. I joined the gay liberation movement when I was 17. I fought as hard as I could for LGBT rights. I spent a good decade and a half fighting the AIDS pandemic. Today I fight mostly for the rights of immigrant people, gay and straight, black and brown and white. All of the people who try to come to this country for a better life and are meeting this horribly racist policy of our new President. I think all LGBTQ people need to be part of this fight, that’s what I’m doing today.”

"Tremendous progress for LGBT Americans has been achieved throughout the years, but the journey toward full equality is far from over. We will not relent or fall silent until we have built a safer, more just and more hopeful future for all.”
