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?
“I had only come out about 8 months before this picture was taken, at NYC Pride in 2013. My girlfriend at the time wanted me to have an experience I would never forget – and I truly never will.”
