San Francisco Dyke March 2012

The San Francisco Dyke March took place on Saturday June 23, 2012. The event began with a massive gathering at Dolores Park in the Mission and culminated in a march through the Mission which ended in the Castro for Pink Saturday.

This year I gravitated towards portrait photography — I wanted to capture intimate moments of individuals in a mass social gathering. Group protest is a significant catalyst to changing social attitudes but close personal connections are key to bringing about true understanding and the acceptance of difference.
