There is a certain irony in being a gay wedding photographer. While I am always honored to be a part of my client’s wedding day, the fact that until recently I couldn’t legally get married was never lost on me. The experience of witnessing so many beautiful weddings made me determined to work towards marriage equality.

Don’t settle for boring straight wedding photography. (pun intended 🙂 I’ve been shooting events for over twenty years, but like most other photographers no doubt, same sex weddings have always been a relatively small part of my business. It certainly hasn’t been for lack of interest on my part. As a gay male and photographer in New York City, I’m absolutely thrilled about the legalization of gay marriage in New York, and look forward to photographing lots of NY same sex weddings for couples who have been waiting a long time for this to come about.

Italy: Threatening Letter From Vatican Shuts Down Gay Kiss Exhibit

Gay Kiss Exhibit

The Vatican’s lawyers sent a threatening letter to a gallery in Rome, forcing gallery to cancel a gay exhibit.

Towleroad reports:

The Vatican this week blocked an exhibition of photos by artist Gonzalo Orquin that featured gay couples kissing in Churches in Rome. The exhibition entitled, “Trialogo” was scheduled to open at the Galleria L’Opera. However, once the Vatican sent a letter threatening legal action, declaring, “the church is against the exhibition,” and invoking the Italian constitution to make its case, Orquin consulted with his lawyers and decided to pull the exhibit for “security reasons.” The Huffington Post reports:

Vicariate spokesman Claudio Tanturri told The Local that the photos violate the Italian constitution. “Italian constitutional law safeguards an individual’s religious feeling and the function of places of worship,” he said. “Therefore photos that are not suitable and do not conform to the spirituality of the place offend and infringe upon the advancement of man in the particular place for the expression of faith”.

So now religious freedom extends to blocking photos of churches?

California, USA: Looking Back at Four Years of NoH8

Wednesday, January 16th, 2013

The iconic ‘NOH8 Campaign’, which started as a response to Proposition 8, recently marked its fourth anniversary in Hollywood. Adam Bouska and Jeff Parshley’s portraits of LGBT people and their allies proudly displaying their ‘NOH8’ with make-up and duct tape are unmistakable and have offered high-profile straight celebrities, politicians, and other public figures a way to show solidarity with the LGBT community.
