Someone once asked me do I believe in Gay couples adopting children. When I look at this photo, I see a child who is genuinely happy and enjoying a festival [pride parade 2010 NYC] that dictates freedom of judgement and persecution based on one’s sexual preference, gender, race, or creed (in my opinion). So to answer the question, I do not think it truly matters the sexual preference of the couple as long as they raise the child to be happy and prepare him or her to survive in this world adequately. Sexual preference is not something that can necessarily be taught, and I think the only reason why people have concerns over gay adoption is the fear that the couple could make the child gay. I do not believe that is true, and so I believe in adoption equally to all adequate couples in this world.

This is one of many photos I had the opportunity to take at the 2010 Afropunk festival. This festival is centered around the Afrocentricity that exists throughout the Punk Culture. Artists like Mos Def, the Cool kids, J*davey, K-os, and Janelle Monae run vibrant through this Afropunk culture. It is a counterculture fluent in freedom, and self expression for many minority, and non-minority youths. I love it, and I look forward to photographing this event in the future.
