“Our Portraits, Our Families” is a groundbreaking group photography exhibition presented by Asian Pride Project that will increase visibility and empower Asian & Pacific Islander LGBTQ individuals and families through the use of visual media and arts. By highlighting and acknowledging the beauty of diverse families, the exhibition will shed much-needed light on a topic often times silenced within our API communities. The exhibition opens in June 2014 in New York City, stay tuned for weekly updates!!
In line with the goals of highlighting the personal and cultural importance of family in “Our Portraits, Our Families” Photography Exhibition, Asian Pride Project invites you all to participate in ‘family moments’ photo sharing, kicking off with the precious Lunar New Year 2014!
Are you a queer API person? How will you celebrate with your family this lunar new year? Can you describe it with a photograph?
Post a photograph describing a moment of your API queer lunar new year spent with your family (however you define family) and post it to Twitter with the tags #OurPortraitsOurFamilies and @APIprideproject and/or to our Facebook page to get featured on our website!
