Queer Love In Color

A celebration of being black and in love. As a visual journalist, I believe pictures can connect with people in a way that other forms of media can’t. To this end, I decided to give a gift to my younger self: the imagery of queer love I’ve never seen.

So gorgeous. Beautiful families together are extra powerful these days.

I love everything about this, including the narrator’s occasional personalization.

Oh thanks for this! It's been a day of reading about various forms of toxic masculinity for me, as well as one Medium-recommended article (seriously, Medium? Your recommendation algorithms need tuning!) calling for the end of the sexual revolution and the return of religious/government/community control over our sex lives. WTF, it's Pride month! And it's about to be Pride Weekend here in San Francisco!

This was a wonderful and much-needed balm to the anxiety of stupidly filling my head with stupid and toxic articles today.

And for more pictures, Nick and Dom Spence's Instagram. Loving these photos and stories about couples.
