This project originated when the Greater Pittsburgh Chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Pennsylvania asked me to volunteer my services and photograph the 2018 Pittsburgh Pride march. I normally don’t photograph people, but I found this opportunity to expand my visual vocabulary a compelling one. On the day of the march, I arrived early to photograph the marchers as they assembled, and then I found a street corner to capture the movement.
Several days later, I awoke with memories of listening to Sly and the Family Stone’s “Everyday People.” Instead of playing a “45,” I listened to it streaming and then read the lyrics and found them relevant to today’s LGBT community. So I title this project as such.
