So we can celebrate virtually, LGBTQ Nation asked our readers to share a photo with us from the first time they went to Pride. Submissions poured in from around the world, spanning every year from 1970 to 2019.

We’ve selected 30 of our favorite photos and stories so we can celebrate with a Pride In Pictures special series and we’ll be sharing them with you every day this month.

What makes this photo special to you?

“Here’s a picture of us in June 2008. We were reconnecting with my grammar school friend and her family. We all marched with PFLAG (Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays) in SF Pride – and it was one of the most emotional and exhilarating experiences of my life.”
