Powerful Gay Pride Photos From Around The World. Because Love is Love!

I’m a huge candid/people photography fan. Powerful photos have an everlasting impact on our history so that we don’t make the same mistakes. I love the photos where it captures a special moment in time and when the photo can tell you an entire lifetime of stories both past, present, and future.

With so much political turmoil and hatred looming through these days, the gay community has decided to fight against the hate by celebrating love and freedom throughout the world.

Below are some powerful and impactful photos I found of people at the gay pride parades from all around the world because no matter where you live, no matter your sexual preference:  Love is love.
