Nice capture and composition. Love the idea, too. When we'll become all one color who can call one better than the other? What is "LGBTO"? And, by the way welcome to the Blog. Hope to see more of your ideas captured in photographs. Thank you.

LGBTQ stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered, and queer.

At the end of the day I always go back to read my comments and those made after mine in order to learn a different perspective. Thank you for answering me. All my best wishes to you and your cause.

I used to hang around with a religeous couple who said a rainbow was a symbol for Christianity, referring back to the biblical reference about a rainbow showing after the flood, and God telling Noah it was a sign of his covenant with man that he wouldn't destroy the world through flood again. Darn nice of him. Oh, but fire wasn't off the table, so watch it...


Anyway, after parting ways with this couple, I found out a rainbow is a gay symbol too. I've often wondered how those people felt when (if) they ever found out the bumper sticker they drove around every day might have been seen as encouragement to people they called sinners. Ahh, the irony!


My opinion of LGBTQ is that it's too darn long, hard to remember, and doesn't flow off the tongue. Plus the G and Q are almost redundant. We need something a little more user friendly and easy for the general public to remember. No suggestions.


About the photograph, which is, after all, the point of the blog (not politics), I think the focus on the hands and the slightly blurred rainbow flag ties the subjects together and helps make the point that it's about love. The fact that those hands are fairly androgynous helps make the point that it's not about love between strictly defined genders, etc., but between hearts.

Lovely shot, regardless of anyones pov. Like the focal point of the hands but would have reversed it to the colors on the flag to stress the rainbow theme for this particular venue.
