Pride 2009 Official Video – and I helped!

Rainbow Flag Above Me

Rainbow Flag Above Me
Originally uploaded by Daniel Greene

I am thrilled to be a part of this. My Flickr friend, Jon Gilbert Leavitt (jglsongs on Flickr), asked if he could use my photo Rainbow Flag Above Me in this video to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the first gay pride parade that occurred after the Stonewall Rebellion. A longtime gay activist of sorts, I wrote a paper on the Stonewall Rebellion for a history class in my senior year of high school in 1985. Now, 24 years later, I’m contributing again to the commemoration of this important historic event. Enjoy the video and the song written by Jon and sung by his partner and another artist. Watch for my photo in the montage near the end.

    Thank you Daniel! I love this photo, and was actually the first one that popped into my head for the end photo montage. Sure, I could go into symbolism about under the rainbow…holding up the movement….propping up our self awareness and confidence as a community, etc. etc. etc. but to sum it up, it’s a GREAT photo by an AMAZING photographer whose eye breathes life into the lens.
