As a queer woman and an artist, I want to give the LGBTQ Community a platform to express their voice's and their truths. I want to show the many faces of this community, the diversity and the strength it takes to be who they are each day. In 2011 I started GAYFACE as a personal project but by 2012 the project started to gain recognition which moved me emotionally to pursue a dream of giving back to the community.
Through these photographs I'm capturing personalities and in that split second of the shutter clicking, I feel one with the subjects. I hope that these photographs bring awareness, a human connection and invoke emotion.
This project celebrates the color, vibrance and diversity of a community that for decades as been in the dark.
I love the idea of this project and it would mean so much to me if you could stop by and check it out.
