I actually had tears rolling down my cheeks scrolling through these photographs. To my surprise.
They are from World Pride 2012, held in London early last month.
I’m sure the event itself was a riot of joy and colours and gratitude and fun and laughter, but the portraits in the photo album by Steve Punter carry such quiet yet considerable dignity, regardless of the subject matter. Each one of them reverberates that word ‘pride’, I could feel it deep in the heart of each photograph.
Here are three taken from the forty-one in the album. I had requested for permission from Mr.Punter to feature these three here, and it was kindly granted. Click any one to go to the album on flickr.
