Sometimes I spend time just looking for beautiful things to inspire me, keep me fresh and happy. But sometimes those adventures intersect with the world of grief. That is what happened one day when I received an email from National Geographic, which I signed up for for the beautiful photography I get in my box. But this time, the lead story was Where Love is Illegal. Some of the most beautiful photographs I have seen were telling the story of LGBTI persecution across the globe, and the incredible people trying to live open, loving lives in spite of nearly unimaginable odds against them. I could not be happier to welcome the photographer for the project, Robin Hammond, to Good Grief radio. We will talk about what led him to create the project, as part of his Witness Change non-profit. We’ll explore the stories of the beautiful people he’s met through the project and how they survive and thrive, often without any family or community support.
