A photographic series depicting 8 families on the Central Coast who represent our LGBTQ+ community. Created as a response to the surge in anti-LGBTQ+ legislation, including a record-number of state bills limiting the rights of LGBTQ+ people in 2022, an alarming increase in threats and violence against LGBTQ+ people, and direct attacks on family-friendly queer events and spaces, this project will showcase the diversity, beauty, joy, love, and connection in our LGBTQ+ families here on the Central Coast. Portraits will provide a window into families that belong here, thrive here, and are glorious in exactly who they are.
