Don't quite understand why the subject matter isn't good myself! Love the first shot.

Oh and I forgot to say, those are fantastic. Would have been nice to get more wide shots, but great none the less.

I personally don't attend these events even though I'm gay. I suppose it's just not my cup of tea. But when ignorant people talk smack about things they don't know, it bugs me.

These events are not more sexual than a trip to Cabo on spring break.

I don't think this thread was supposed to become a moral issue.

The photos are good quality. And it's relevant to society. It's documenting history.

agree, this is a photography forum. Make a comment about the photography or dont make one.

I like the shots. I do agree with the comment about too close a crop. Shoulders were cut off in some.

While we all have strong opinions on different issues, POTN is NOT the place to discuss them. Please feel free to discuss the photography at hand, but check your personal beliefs at the login screen.
