Thank you for using my photograph to illustrate this piece on the effectiveness (or lack thereof) of former president Trump’s travel ban, @Lawfareblog (piece written by @harshwords222 and @FaizaPatelBCJ)
The photograph was taken at the Supreme Court in 2018, where a confluence of groups, including prominent LGBTQ groups came together to oppose the then-president’s decision.
At the same time, anti-human, homophobic, transphobic groups were there as well.
It’s these times when a person (myself in this case) looks around and wonders if what they are seeing is really happening.
I’m pleased I was able to capture these moments, because we have to remember them.
More photographs from that day are below, with pride in all the communities who came together to say no to a harmful policy.
Trump’s Travel Ban Did Not Make Americans More Safe
