OUT Photo Series is a portrait photo series of LGBTQIA+ individuals that explores the differences between closeted experiences and "out" experiences through two distinct portraits. Instead of using LGBTQIA+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersex, and Asexual and more) this paper will use the word Queer, whose historical context will be reviewed later. This paper begins by outlining the background for this project, including its inspiration. This paper will then review the creative process and technical process for the entire project. This paper will finally close by discussing takeaways from each participants and from the project as a whole.
