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.

What makes this photo special to you?

This is my husband walking to our 2nd Cincy Pride parade with my two kids. Our youngest child (on the left) is trans but had yet to come out to us. I believe the openness of our family helped her be become her true self at the age of seven.
