Gay Couples In Love Photographed Around The Globe

Here's a story to put a smile on your face and truly warm the heart.

Several weeks ago Braden Summers (a talented photographer who lives in New York) started a Kickstarter campaign asking for people to help fund his photographic journey around the globe. He planned to photograph gay and lesbian couples in India, Brazil, France, South Africa, Lebanon, United States and United Kingdom for series titled "All Love Is Equal".

The Kickstarter community rallied behind his idea backing him to the tune of $23K for his 6 week journey

“A large driving force behind creating this series was actually less about affecting the gay community directly, and more about giving the general population a way to relate to gay imagery which is devoid of sex, victimization, or banality – themes that might usually prevent some folks from connecting. When thinking of iconic romance, ask yourself if any imagery comes to mind that is not showing heterosexual couples? Probably not. I would like to use this work as a platform to discuss why that is and how to change it.”

6 weeks later and thousands of air-miles later, he's back and released the incredible and heart-warming images from his journey. Different races, ages, cultures and countries all united by a true and genuine love for their same-sex partner.

Whilst an aggressive anti-gay stance is being peddled by the Russian government, it's reassuring to know that there are other parts of the world where love, in all its forms is celebrated, respected and encouraged.

We have Braden's beautiful work to thank for that.
