Boston LGBTQ History Month Portraits

By Charlotte Robinson, October 04, 2022

To celebrate LGBTQ History Month in Boston a new public photography exhibition has been installed on the Boston Common to highlight the contributions of our Massachusetts LGBTQ community. The photo exhibit entitled ‘Portraits of Pride Boston’ will be on display now through October 29th. The installation features 8-foot portraits of local LGBTQ+ leaders from a variety of backgrounds is curated by area LGBTQ advocate & community organizer Jean E. Dolin & shot by world-renowned photographer John Huet (Vogue, Olympics, Nike). Dolin stated, “Now more than ever, it is essential to tell the stories of LGBTQ+ people & celebrate how far we’ve come. ‘Portraits of Pride’ uplifts our community’s many, many achievements in an artistic, intentional & public way. I am so proud to pay this tribute to my hometown & amplify the diverse, exceptional voices that make up Boston’s LGBTQ+ community. Massachusetts has consistently been setting the example of championing LGBTQ+ rights - not just for the country, but for the world - with many of those rights being the results of decades of hard work and advocacy. Through this exhibit, I want the public to get to know these champions & the collective history that exists in each of them.” Portraits of Pride will be on view for the public at the Boston Common at the corner of Charles Street & Beacon Street for the month of October. The exhibition is sponsored by Nonprofit Incubator & supported by the Boston Foundation, State Street, Eastern Bank & Leadership Brainery. An additional installation of the portraits will be exhibited on the Gallery Wall of Seaport Square at 60 Seaport Blvd. in Boston.
