H8


I shot these today in front of the California Supreme Court.

The moment of the day was when I rode my bicycle on the street which separated the two crowds of people backed by barricades and policemen. Not everyday do you get to ride your bike between to giant masses of competing people. I felt like I was Moses crossing the Red Sea or I was walking through the DMZ which separates North and South Korea.

What this image will mean in years to come...



His sign should say everyone because I think everyone is a pervert.

Yes, I rode my bike alongside to get this shot.






Regarding some of these images, I really wanted to capture what hate looks like to me on the 5th of March, 2009 for documentary purposes.


And if you don't know, now you know:

Thanks for capturing this moment. I got married at city hall to my girlfriend last August and March 5 is my birthday. Fingers crossed that Love wins in the fight against H8.
