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.
St. Joseph, Missouri, 2019
What makes this photo special to you?
We had only been married a few years, so it was the first time we experienced a Pride Festival together. Also, it was the first year we successfully convinced our church, First Presbyterian Church of St. Joseph (where my husband, Jason Jasper, is Assistant to the Music Ministry and I am a Ruling Elder) to host a table at Pride. It was an exciting step towards inclusion and affirmation for our church at the time.
