PORTRAITS OF PRIDE
Portraits of Pride is a photography project that presents large-scale and intimate portraits of LGBTQ leaders through curated exhibitions and special installations.
In October 2022, Portraits of Pride was launched to commemorate LGBTQ History Month from October 1st to October 29th with two photography installations in Boston Massachusetts, highlighting the work and stories of 19 remarkable leaders.
One installation took center on the historic Boston Common, with 24 printed 8 feet tall portraits; offering Bostonians and visitors a larger-than-life look at the leaders of the LGBTQ Community in Boston. The second installation on the Gallery Wall of Seaport,presented a unique set of eye-level dimensions of the portraits; offering viewers and patrons a close and intimate look at the honorees.
Both installations were on view throughout the month of October in honor LGBTQ History Month. This one-of-a-kind exhibit celebrated the rich history of Boston’s LGBTQ+ community and the many contributions of the area’s LGBTQ+ leaders have made to the advancement of LGBTQ+ rights in Massachusetts and beyond.
The inaugural honorees of Portraits of Pride included Massachusetts' top leaders in public service, entrepreneurship, business, law,
and more.We invite you to read their stories below- who they are, what they do, and the definition of pride in their own words.
