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?

I marched for a few years with PFLAG while living in San Francisco. We were making these posters right before we started marching, and on that day the crowd could see that I was a proud mom who loved her four gay kids.
