“The New Art of Capturing Love,” a panel discussion that’s part of the Human Rights Campaign’s Equality Talks series with Politics & Prose, is Thursday from 7-9 p.m. at HRC Headquarters (1640 Rhode Island Ave., N.W.).
Gayweddings.com president Kathryn Hamm and photographer Thea Dodds will discuss what they say are the limitations of traditional notions of gender roles in wedding rituals and photography and the ways LGBT couples can help straight couples buck tradition. They will also consider how the mainstream wedding industry — a billion-dollar-plus industry per year — handles this niche market.
A photography show featuring shots from their new book of the same title, billed as the first LGBT wedding photography book, will also be on site. They will also answer questions and sign copies of the book. The event is free and open to the public. Visit hrc.org/capturinglove for details.
