All Love is Equal
A few months ago, photographer Braden Summers launched his Kickstarter project, ‘All Love is Equal,’ in an effort to showcase love. He felt that the LGBT community was misrepresented by the mainstream media that has the tendency to portray LGBT couples “in overly sexualized images, and sadly shown as a weak and powerless minority in foreign countries where it is dangerous to be recognized as gay, lesbian, transgender, or queer of any kind.”
Braden, who describes himself as being gay, wanted to raise global awareness and compassion of couples in love in culturally diverse settings. After raising over $23k, Braden and a producer, Greg Jaroszewski, set off for a 6 week journey from Paris, India, Lebanon, South Africa, Brazil, and the US to create the following series of dramatized images.
