Artist Colorized Vintage Portraits Of LGBT Couples To Show Beauty And Support For The LGBTQ+ Community

Accordint to Andrea Erali: “Hi, my name is Andrea and I’m a gay art director based in New York. A couple of years ago, I came across “The Invisibles,” a touching collection of vintage portraits of love and pride curated by Sebastien Lifshitz. I found these photos of gay lovers and friends so touching, and I realized at that moment that the LGBTQ+ community has a history too. And a beautiful one.”

“I asked myself if there was anything I could do to make this history visible and closer to the present day. That’s how I started to personally color them, trying to imagine what the real colors and tones might have been. It was my hope to do them justice, to show that we are connected to them, that love is strong and resilient and it will always win.”

“I created a dedicated page on Instagram where I’ll keep posting colorized images. If you have vintage images showing gay lovers and friends, I’ll be happy to colorize it for you via a $5 donation to the Trevor Project. Together, we can help build the future of the LGBTQ+ community through its past.”
