Pride: We Are Family

I first made and posted this video in 2016 — I was going to reprocess the images and add new photos to the video. Still, I decided to leave it because there is an Easter egg in this video, a moment that seemed curiously out of place at the time, but only evident as disinformation in retrospect.

The photos in the video were taken in 2015 when Pride celebrated the Supreme Court’s ruling on same-sex marriage.

I used “We Are Family”  by Sister Sledge because in the 1970s, ‘We Are Family” was an anthem for the Gay and Feminist movements.

In 1970, Gay Liberation said we are everywhere: all religions, races, and
nationalities.

“We Are Family” celebrates solidarity.

If I turned around every time somebody called me a faggot, I’d be walking backward – and I don’t want to walk backward.”
– Harvey Milk

We are everyone, and we will not go back.
