Pride Photo Awards

Opening Reception
Monday, May 22, 2017
6:00 - 7:00 PM

On view May 22-June 18, 2017

Please join us for a public gallery reception for the opening of the Pride Photo Award Exhibition. This opening event is held in honor of Harvey Milk Day and marks the cooperation between the City and County of San Francisco and the City of Amsterdam. Special guests: Stuart Milk, Founder and CEO of the Harvey Milk Foundation, and the Honorable Mark Leno, former California State Senator.

Pride Photo Award is an annual international photo contest focusing on sexual diversity and gender identity. Every year photographers from all over the world are invited to share their most imaginative, challenging and non-stereotypical take on gender and sexuality. An international jury of experts selects the very best work from which we make an exhibition for the world to see. The SF LGBT Center is excited to partner with the Pride Photo Award to bring a selection of winning photographs from the 2016 edition to the Center's new gallery space. The exhibition features the work of artists from 6 countries (listed below) and is on view May 22 through June 18.

Pride Photo Award contributes to a safer and more inclusive world by making sexual and gender diversity visible and creating awareness of the ‘other’. We believe that all people have the right to freely express their identity whoever and wherever they are. Moreover, it is our strong conviction that diversity should be celebrated and regarded as an asset rather than as a threat, to any society. The foundation, established in 2010, is based in Amsterdam and an initiative of COC Amsterdam, IHLIA and the Homomonument Foundation. It receives support and advice from photo museum Foam and World Press Photo.

SF LGBT Center Statement on Pulse Nightclub Massacre

(San Francisco, CA, June 12, 2016)—This morning a gunman opened fire at Pulse, an LGBTQ nightclub in Orlando, Florida. He murdered 50 people and injured 53, making it the worst mass shooting in U.S. History. Statement from SF LGBT Center Executive Director Rebecca Rolfe: “Our hearts are with the LGBTQ and entire Orlando community. Any violence is unacceptable in our society. And while our community has made historic strides in acceptance and equality, this tragedy is a painful reminder of the dangers LGBTQ people continue to face every day.”
