One photo, two brides.
They gather the folds of their white gowns as they lift their wedding bouquets above their heads, laughing.
One of the women was Jane Kreinberg’s lesbian niece. Kreinberg took a photo of that rousing moment and it became part of an ArtsUnited show in Wilton Manors. ArtsUnited is a South Florida nonprofit that has provided opportunities for gay and lesbian artists since 1999.
However, no one knew Kreinberg’s photo would inspire an entire series of exhibits.
For the past few months throughout South Florida, ArtsUnited has presented We Do, Too!, wedding photos of same-sex couples from Florida who had to leave the state in order to get married. Included with the photos are written statements sharing the couples’ thoughts on marriage equality as well as what it’s like to live in a state that doesn’t legally recognize their marriage.
We Do Too! has appeared at the LGBT Visitor Center in Miami and Compass GLCC in Lake Worth. This September, the collection of twenty-four photos can be viewed at The Pride Center in Wilton Manors until September 30.
