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.


Creator of the AIDS Memorial Quilt

“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.”


Speaker of the House

"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.”

The campaign is comprised of two parts. A statement and a photograph. Click on the following photographs to view the participants statement.
