Black LGBT

This series of portraits showcases just a handful of queer black people throughout history. Each a pioneer in their own right, they had to go against societal pressures to stay hidden and silent. The chosen quotes hit upon their other facets such as striving for perfection,  the pursuit of social equality, romanticism and simple irreverent humor. I can only strive to produce an iota of impact these brave men & women have made in their lifetimes.
