The Walk with Pride Project
This is a gay issue.
This is a straight issue.
This is a human rights issue.
Walk With Pride (WWP) is a project to photograph and document gay pride parades around the globe. Our aim is to promote pride, empathy, and understanding on an international level, while highlighting the similarities and differences in gay rights and gay culture around the world.

Thousands marched in the Holy Land on Thursday as part of the Jerusalem LGBT equality march.
There were no floats and no DJs, as this year’s Jerusalem March was being held in remembrance for the 2 people tragically killed at last year’s LGBT youth center shooting in Tel Aviv. An estimated 1,500 police were in attendance, more as a preventative measure, as protests were minor.
Participants marched from Independence Park to the Parliament building, where a rally was held asking the government to promote equality and help end the violence toward Israel’s LGBT community.

It was clear from the beginning that London Pride would be a different experience than most of the Prides we’ve documented so far in the ‘Walk with Pride’ Project. Thousands of people are expected to participate in the Pride, with several hundred of thousands more coming to watch.
We arrived 3 hours early and the preparations were already in full swing. Buses lined Baker Street, and the work of ‘glamming’ them had started. People walked around in crazy outfits, free to wear how much or how little they’d like. While London Pride does have a big festive party atmosphere feel, there is another side that concerns rights and social issues. There were many organizations present supporting different social projects, and groups raising awareness concerning the troubles face by LGBT communities in Africa and the Middle East. Chad’s photos fro this Pride try to show this contrast, as he switches between portraits of those in costume, and those promoting social issues. It’s something a little different, but we hope you Enjoy …!
