San Mateo County Pride PUPs

Here at ODE, we’ve been trying out a new way of capturing stories from the community. We call it PUP, which is short for Pop-Up Photovoice. June 10th was San Mateo County’s Pride event in the park, and we captured stories about Pride. Our framing question was, “What does Pride mean to you?”. Some shared stories of celebration, while others shared stories of hardship and resilience. Stories shared anonymously are placed with the intersectional Pride flag, which includes brown and black stripes.

We ask that you reflect on your role with the community as you look through these Pop-Up Photovoices.

If you’d like to run PUP on your own, or invite us to capture stories in your community, email Siavash Zohoori at szohoori@smcgov.org
