Photo project ‘The Heart Speaks’

The parents of LGBT+ people let their hearts speak in the photo project ‘The Heart Speaks’. They open up their hearts to their own and other’s LGBT+ children within Dutch churches. Every week a new portret is uploaded to this website. It is also spread through social media.
