As it's Pride season, my housemate André (model) and I found ourselves thinking about what Pride means to us and what we are proud of. According to Google, Gay Pride is a sense of strong self-esteem associated with a person's public acknowledgement of their homosexuality, but for us it's not only about sexuality... Pride is about acceptance, equality and just being whoever the hell you want to be. So we discuss the idea of doing a photoshoot that was not only queer but also showcased our passions, dedication to our crafts and (of course) pride!
André's passion is pole dancing and he has worked so hard to get to where he is. His confidence in his body has really flourished the last 3 years, so he jumped at the chance to show-off in the shots.
My passion is obviously my photography, so together we've made something that we can both be very proud of. After all, tis the season!
Hope you enjoy it as much as we do, leave us a comment below... x
Remember to always be proud of who you are and what you believe in. Happy Pride :) Luis
