the new face of family

Photographer Katie Hawkins has undertaken an ambitious three-part project in an effort to promote marriage equality and to raise awareness about issues affecting LGBT families.

Through exhibitions of LGBT family portraits, a book of photographs and family stories plus a documentary, Hawkins aims to “help people view their previous conception of family through a new lens of acceptance and understanding rather than difference and discrimination.”

The documentary follows Hawkins herself and her struggle to create a family against society’s forces, as well as a twenty-something straight guy whose parents are gay.

Have a look at The New Face of Family to follow the project or to participate by striking a pose with you and yours.
