For years, Photographer Barbara Proud has been on the ground, capturing the quiet, every day moments of loving, committed same-sex couples. The culmination of her commitment to depicting their lived experiences is now hardbound and soon available in bookstores across the country.
First Comes Love, which began as an exhibition of more than 70 couples in March 2009, is a celebration of love and devotion. It is a testament to the diversity and strength of the LGBT community. It is a commemoration of the hard work of many to achieve equality for all.
For many of HRC’s members and supporters, B. Proud is a household name. The fine art photographer is frequently on-hand at HRC national events to lend her unparalleled talent to capture a moment.
The book is expected to hit the shelves this month. Order a copy of the book here.
