Pride | In The Name Of Love says
June 26, 2015 - The decision to strike down Defense Of Marriage Act by the U.S. Supreme Court signified a historic progression in civil rights.

In a matter of weeks our country has legally acknowledged LGBTQ people’s right to participate in heteronormative society, while clearly still suffering from consistent, racially-charged murders, and black bodies killed in the streets and in churches.

The shooting at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston on June 17, 2015 added nine deaths to an increasing number of direct attacks on black Americans.

The viral nature of our news outlets today can both spark—and prematurely extinguish—our reactions to current events: but these events, positive and horrific, demand action. We invite you to join us in fostering and extending visual dialogue on these and intersecting issues by contributing photographs that will populate our windows on the corner of 12th and Marion. We are offering a public, visual forum for communication through August 15. Given the fluid nature of this we accept no responsibility for, and cannot return, images, so please DO NOT bring original photographs unless you are willing to part with them.

How to participate:
Bring in and add a photograph to the designated space:
900 12th Ave. (northeast corner of 12th Ave and Marion St)
Public hours : Mon: 5pm-9pm, Tues-Fri: 12pm-9pm, Sat:12pm-6pm

Drop off non-returnable images in the box labeled “Pride” by our door and we will add it to the conversation

Tag your photos in Instagram with #nameoflovePCNW (Follow us at @photocenternw)
