A History of Pride through Images (Both 2D and 3D)
– Scott Ackerson, June 14, 2022
Pride began in stark black and white in 1970, for the first anniversary of the uprising at Stonewall.
As the years passed, it filled out into a rainbow of color and polaroid photos as LGBT+ people marched for their rights and gained public awareness. They sought the legalization of same sex marriage, medical treatment during the AIDs crisis, and anti-discrimination policies.
In the 1990s, publicly affordable digital cameras brought pride marches into new focus, and by the 2000s, the event had spread across the globe.
These marches began to shift the social and political landscape. In 2015, during June, the LGBT+ community saw a major victory in the U.S. with the legalization of same sex marriage.
This year, immersive pride marches are taking place in the metaverse.
As Quidient works at the Final Frontier of Photography®, we foresee vivid, realistic virtual spaces in the metaverse where people of all sexual/asexual orientations, genders, ages, abilities, races, ethnicities, political beliefs, and religions can safely and comfortably connect and share experiences. Quidient remains committed to LGBT+ inclusion and anti-discrimination of all kinds in our hiring policies, workplace environment, and community.
We wish you a happy pride month!
