Special Message from IDAHO Sydney – PARTICIPATE!

The ‘Walk With Pride’ project has a special message to share from the IDAHO Sydney organization.

Hi -  Nick here from IDAHO Sydney in Australia with an invitation to participate in the 2011 STANDING TALL Catalogue we intend to put together for IDAHO 2011.

IDAHO is an acronym for International Day Against Homophobia – 17th of May world wide. Last year we created a catalogue titled ‘Break The Silence’ which included images from the exhibition and introductions form the living library books. This year we are not having a living library but I still think its important to represent and document the many different faces within our community. Its a great way to help people that feel isolated or are questioning their sexuality. They are not alone and they are not abnormal.

If you would like to participate all I need is one paragraph (100 to 150 words) from you which tells us about you. You can talk about anything you like. You could change someone’s life in one paragraph.

Also please tag your paragraph with your name, age and were you live (country). If you are not comfortable with using your name feel free to make one up. Also if you would like to extend the invitation to all your friends and family that would be great!

Together we can make a difference.

All the best

Nick Baldas – curator IDAHO Sydney

What’s New?

For now, the WWP website will be taken over by the blog.  You can still see many of the award winning images over at my website located at http://www.charlesmeacham.com The images are located in two galleries: Pride and Homophobia.

We both had an incredible year, and met some really incredible people.  Both of us would like to thank everyone for opening up their lives and letting us get to know them.

Sarah and I will continue to photograph and support LGBT Rights every opportunity we get.

I will also keep you updated on the May 17th exhibitions.

All my best,

Charles Meacham
