Quote:
When you think of iconic romance, what image do you get? Photographer Braden Summers thought only of straight couples when he pictured iconic romance. So he decided to help change that lack of representation by photographing gay couples from around the world embracing their love. (Note: Some are real couples and some are models.)

[...]

Clarification: Braden used models instead of real couples for some of these images "to protect the identities of actual LGBTQ members who might be in danger in certain countries should their faces be seen."

Those are stunning pictures. I think it's important that the entire world sees these pictures. We need to raise awareness.

Beautiful for tomorrow's college dorm rooms along with the Times Square WWII kiss.

While the models were ethnically diverse, I felt they were too hetero-normative. Very femme/femme women. Butch/butch men. Maybe his next piece will explore our LGBT diversity.

I can see what you mean.

Perhaps he initially wanted to avoid the stereotypes of a femme having to pair with a butch or a relationship needing a "man" and a "woman."
