Gabriela Hermans’ “The Kids”
The best stories are the most personal. Photographer Gabriela Herman struggled with her mother’s coming out in high school, and tried to hide the truth from her classmates and friends. A decade later, she turned her camera on the children of LGBT parents in a moving series entitled “The Kids.” Beautiful photos paired with stories of struggle and acceptance in one of the year’s most poignant essays.
