Soho: London’s Gay Community

BY ALEXANDRA FLAMINI

I accompanied Sarah Whitmire to document with my camera London’s Soho community. We explored the neighborhood that is home to St. Gregory’s, a church that hosts gay Catholic masses the first and third Sunday evenings every month.

My slideshow provides a visual portrait of the community to the Indigo Twin’s song Power of Two.

Reporting on Religion — London

BY MEGAN NELSON

I added finishing touches to my final project about reporting on religion. I took the advice from my classmates and put in better pictures that went with the script more. I also moved some clips around so they sounded better, and I cut one a little shorter. With my last few edits, this project came out better than I expected.

An Afternoon in Le Marais
BY: SARAH WHITMIRE

Le Marais is a district in Paris noted for its Jewish and homosexual communities.

Though we’d hoped to see an intermingling of the two facets of this area, after walking the streets, it seemed that the groups just happened to be next to each other.

There were signs of a homosexual community in this section of Paris. Men walked the streets in pairs, and couples ate at outdoor cafés. I also saw a number of shops selling nothing but bright men’s underwear–something I’d never seen before.

After being warned that the French don’t take kindly to people snapping pictures of your face (there aren’t court decisions and laws protecting photographers here as there are in the States), I couldn’t bring myself to document these subtle hints of a homosexual community. We had to be quite inconspicuous about photographing (well, as inconspicuous as English-speaking students with 200mm lenses can be).
