Women in Photography 2018 Exhibition
Love and Pride in Alabama | Annie Flanagan

Deep in the Bible Belt, L.G.B.T. communities are fighting for greater visibility and acceptance. In dense urban centers, the image of Pride as a week of bacchanalian parties and corporate-sponsored floats has caused some to question its importance. But in places like Alabama, where L.G.B.T. people still lack legal protection from discrimination and face barriers to marriage and adoption, Pride events remain a critical display of solidarity. The series follows some of the people who are fighting for greater visibility and acceptance for L.G.B.T. communities in Alabama.
