My name is Mackenzie Madriaga. And I'm a 15-year-old Filipino and Mexican girl who loves photography. These photos were taken at the Women's Rights March in San Diego where it was nice to see people come together for one issue and deal with it nonviolently. I would like to think I'm open minded having grown up in lgbtq+ areas and living in some bad neighborhoods for a bit as a kid. I think that the people around me that I've grown up with have altered the way I make decisions and think, and for that, I am so thankful. I am extremely thankful for the LGBT
a community that has taught me that it is okay to feel comfortable in your own skin and to respect everyone around me.
