A few months ago I had the honor to work with COLAGE, a fantastic organization that unites people with LGBTQ parents into a network of peers and supports them as they nurture and empower each other to be skilled, self-confident, and just leaders in our collective communities. I am a huge fan of COLAGE's mission and was invited to NYC to photograph a summit that they were putting on, capture the amazingly mature, beautifully articulate and inspiring youth, and make some images that represent the organization. It was a dream assignment. I loved working with all the families, and listening to their stories (I cried like 10 million times). I'm happy to be sharing some of those images now.

If you know of any LGBTQ families, parents-to-be, wannabe parents, or youth 8-18 with one or more LGBTQ parent, consider looking into COLAGE and their amazing Family Week which takes place every summer in Provincetown, MA. Registration is open now.
