We march and dance in the streets, because queers before us fought for it to be possible.

When I spotted these photographs by Lauren Brits on Instagram, I wanted to feature them because they have a timeless quality that embeds Cape Town’s 2016 Pride parade in the lineage of all the Prides that have come before.

I treasure my hard earned right to be a part of this event every year.
