For our second annual Pride in Pictures, LGBTQ Nation asked readers to submit a meaningful photo of themselves at Pride.

We have absolutely loved seeing your joy, your glitter, your fabulous outfits, and of course, your pride. Now, we’re spending the summer sharing some of our favorite photos and stories with all of you.

Kicking us off this week is activist Dominique Morgan, executive director of the LGBTQ-focused prison abolitionist organization Black and Pink, which provides full spectrum services to LGBTQ+ people effected by the carceral system. Morgan is also a successful R&B artist.

What makes this photo special to you?

This photo represents the power and prestige of being a Black Trans Woman in the world. Pride exists because WE exist. As we celebrate Pride this photo reminds me of who I am and who I come from.
