Photography has always been my favorite art medium, and I especially love portraits. This week I wanted to feature some amazing photo blogs and projects that promote queer visibility. There’s still so little positive (much less accurate) representation of the LGBTQ community in mass media, and I definitely feel that this void contributes to homophobia in our society. Plus, looking at photos of cute, out queers always brightens my day. Enjoy!
Amos Mac Photography – Though Amos Mac is best known for his work with OP Magazine, he has also taken a variety of excellent portraits featuring the queer community. Some content is NSFW.
Between Black & White: A Portrait of Transgender Toronto – A black and white photo series by Canadian photographer Tanja-Tiziana. The 18 photos featured are beautifully done and feature a broad range of people, including musician Lucas Silveira.
We Are Not the Enemy – A photo blog that promotes LGBTQ equality through queer visibility. I’m not sure it’s updated anymore, but the photos of all the cute queer couples and groups of friends posted are totally worth checking out.
Sophia Wallace Photography: Truer – My favorite collection by this excellent photographer. It features a young queer couple. Definitely check out the side bar links to her other photo projects as well.
