Stonewall Cymru invites people to ‘Get in the picture’

Stonewall Cymru are launching a new project at Swansea Pride on 26th June to gather images of lesbian, gay and bisexual people and same-sex couples to challenge stereotypical images.

Stonewall Cymru are inviting people from across Wales to take photos that represent all aspects of lesbian, gay and bisexual life in Wales as part of a ‘Get in the Picture’ project to create a free-access bank of images for organisations to use.

Ele Hicks, Projects and Policy Officer for Stonewall Cymru said: “For several years lesbian, gay and bisexual people have been telling us that images they see don’t represent them. This project will challenge stereotypes by presenting the diversity of LGB people in Wales in photos”

She added: “Many organisations tell us they would like to include images of same sex couples, but can't find them anywhere. We are now gathering pictures together of all kinds to help organisations find and include them.”

The project will start with a snaps being taken at Swansea Pride on 26th June and continue with volunteers taking photos at the National Eisteddfod and Cardiff Mardi Gras.

People can also submit their own photos to the image bank by emailing: Eleanor.hicks@stonewallcymru.org.uk
