Walk With Pride – A Straight Couple Promoting LGBT Gay Pride Around The World



“Walk with Pride” is a planned 2010-11 project to photograph and document gay pride parades around the globe. Our aim is to promote lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender pride on an international level, while highlighting the similarities and differences in gay rights and gay culture around the world.


Charles “Chad” Meacham (Project Photographer)


Charles was born just outside of Philadelphia, PA, and began traveling immediately after high school.  He picked up a camera at the age of 30, and has since been privileged to win over 20 international awards including those from National Geographic Traveler, Smithsonian, and PDN magazines.  The idea for this project was sparked after months of following the recent debates in America on gay rights issues in the news, and photographing the 2009Taipei Pride event, one of the largest pride parades in Asia.


Sarah Baxter (Project Coordinator)


Sarah Baxter is the blogger for this project, and contact person/organizer.  Born in Athens, Ohio, Sarah enjoys traveling, and has lived and worked in Los Angeles, NE Thailand, North Africa, and most recently in Taipei, Taiwan.



THE  GOAL –


Fourteen months, over 30 high intensity parades, and one straight couple with the ambitious aim of using photography to promote lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and all sorts of pride on an international level.  Through social media they aspire to highlight the similarities and differences in gay rights and gay culture around the world, while surrounded by the frequently “mardi-gras” like atmosphere of the celebrations.



This is a gay issue.
This is a straight issue.
This is a human rights issue.
