San Francisco’s passion surrounding the cause became evident by the end of the day when the total portraits reached 210, setting a new record. Previously, the most people photographed by the campaign in one day was 138.
Derek Besenfelder, organizer of the photo shoot, attributes the strong turnout and success of the day to the collaborative effort put forth by key members within the community. “I personally want to thank Alexandra Tyndall, Craig Lipton, Courtney Steffens, Jenevieve Randall, Jessica Mullens, Karen Tamblyn, Keylee Sanders, Lindsey Shook and Rebecca Heaps for all of their hard work and assistance. We proved that together, united, we can make a difference.”
No one can accuse San Francisco of lacking love and commitment to their community, family and friends. The diverse support this campaign has received proves that it is not about Republican or Democrat, Man or Woman, Gay or Straight, but rather equality and justice for all.
