In Fall 2014, documentary photographer, Erin Dunn, began photographing couples and families within Charlotte’s LGBTQ community for the nationwide ‘Love Is Love’ Project. Her mission was to build a collage of pictures that depict our beautifully diverse relationships for inclusion in the national series, and to display them here locally in our community center.
As the Community Center regroups, Erin is continuing her work here on this website. Each month we will introduce you to a local couple or family and they will be featured in our 2017 calendar. (Previously photographed couples will be displayed in our archives later this summer.)
Meet the Family
We are ready to celebrate your LOVE!
2015 was filled with many new and excited experiences for Visit Gay Charlotte. We launched seven new pages on this website, and we have had the pleasure of meeting dozens of beautiful Charlotte couples. As we begin this new year, we want to extend another offer to the community for an opportunity to become a featured couple! Are you newly engaged, planning a wedding or been recently married?
We want to celebrate YOU on our Say “I Do!” page.
Documentary Photographer, Erin Dunn, will meet you in a Charlotte location of your choosing and complete a photo shoot and short interview. All photos taken are yours to keep as our gift to you for your participation. Please email Erin@visitgaycharlotte.org to express your interest in being selected, to nominate a couple that you would like to see featured, or for questions about Love Is Love.
Thank you in advance to Chad and Nate Turner who will be our first featured couple in 2016. Stay tuned for our upcoming February issue. And thank you, again, to all of our 2015 couples!
*Note from the Photographer: All families and couples are encouraged to upload photos on social media, via Instagram and Twitter, using the #loveisloveclt.
