Grabbed this iPhone shot before heading to lunch. I think it may be my favorite portrait of Seattle Gay News publisher George Bakan. He stands proud in front of one of the stacks of 4,500 160-page SGNs, which -- as editor Rick McKinnon learned while digging through the archives for MOHAI's "Revealing Queer" exhibit this past spring -- actually turns 40 this month, the same as Seattle Pride! (And not 42 as previously thought). Welp, I don't know if anyone has influenced my direction as much as George has , so I thought it apt to post his image here to kick off the weekend. Happy Pride, everyone!
