In the past few years, Pride Month has become increasingly important to me. I’ve gone through an effort to embrace my queer identity and not let my earlier and younger self-censoring and fear slow me down. I live bolder more colorfully, and with an eye toward trying new things. When June began, it hit me like a bolt that I know many wonderful, talented, and cute queer people, and I had the idea to create a Pride-themed photo series. That’s what inspired my “Gotta Make Way for the Homo Superior” project. I want to thank my friends Beca, JB, Paul, Noah, Becca S, and my husband Adam for participating. I also want to give my friend and colleague Steve a shout out for shooting the photos of me for the project. This was a magical Pride Month for me, and I hope it’ll become a yearly tradition. So look out–the future is unabashedly queer.
