Romantic Images of Gay Couples Around the World
“When thinking of iconic romance, ask yourself if any imagery (paintings, photographs, film-stills) comes to mind that is not showing heterosexual couples? Probably not," says New York photographer Braden Summers, who has created his kickstarter project “All Love Is Equal” to show classically romantic scenes with gay couples in the UK, France, India, Lebanon, Brazil and the U.S.
“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.”
“The photographs are not documentations, they are dreamy illustrations of what open expressions of love in different cultures *could* look like in the future, more accepting time.”
