Vans, the famous and trendy trainer shop, have dedicated their Covent Garden retail outlet to share LGBTQ stories from countries where being gay, trans or non conformist is illegal. The company says “ Visit our Covent Garden’s location for a showcase of selected Pride portraits and stories. By featuring these 6 stories of survival from the LGBTQI+ community, we hope to create greater visibility and fight the stigma that silences so many people. Their images will bring the Pride story alive in a meaningful and authentic way. “. There are several workshops connected with the exhibition, more information on which can be found at vans.co.uk.
