In March my friend Gabriel invited me to participate in a photography show celebrating New Mexico-born women of color.
As usual, the Albuquerque Pride Parade 2016 edition was a complicated act of beauty.
This year I finally swallowed my fear of nonbelonging, and attended Self Serve’s Pride parking lot cookout/parade station. Again, the camera gives me purpose. Purpose gives me peace. Peace emboldens me. I hope yours was a bold and purposeful Pride.
