My dad was a very conservative Republican businessman, so obviously I considered it a problem when I realized I was a lesbian.
I always give a print to everybody I photograph, and some of my subjects have told me they have a hard time hanging them up at home.
I go back and forth, but I never wanted to be the photographer of the gay and lesbian community. I will wave a rainbow flag proudly, but I am not a singular identity. I think a singular identity isn't very interesting, and I'm a little bit more multifaceted as a person than that.
I tried to get as far away from home as possible after I graduated from high school because I had a hard time being a kid.
