Mark It Proud


Photography, Art Direction

I never realized how something as small as a greeting card can intensify the feeling of detachment from society that many in the gay community often trouble from. We all have events in our lives that we want to celebrate with our families and friends, and our sexual preference should make no difference in these matters.

So when my friend Daniel asked me to shoot for Mark It Proud, a company that helps celebrate life's momentous occasions with LGBTQ-inclusive cards, I was 100% on board. Not only that, a portion of their proceeds will go to charities such as The Trevor Project and It Gets Better. It was honour to be a part of something I stand for as a member of this community.

These cards are proudly designed and printed in Toronto, Canada.
