Love is in the air! This year’s theme is #LoveisLoveisLove - a motif inspired by local photographer, Adam Zivo’s, ongoing project featuring “queer-positive imagery to help combat prejudice experienced by those within the LGBTQ+ community.”
The much-anticipated event features community organization, Rainbow Railroad, which is dedicated to saving the lives of LGBTQ+ people globally.
