These are just some of the many ways members of the LGBT community identify themselves in a beautiful photo series from San Francisco-based photographer Sarah Deragon.
Deragon’s “The Identity Project” has taken her around the country as she “seeks to explore the labels we choose to identify with when defining our gender and sexuality.” Her portraits show the amazing diversity and vibance of a queer community that for too long has been defined by outsiders.

Apollonia Saintclair asc 379 - 20130625 L’apprentissage (Wrapped Around Your Finger)
You consider me the young apprentice / Caught between the Scylla and Charibdes. / Hypnotized by you if I should linger / Staring at the ring around your finger. / I have only come here seeking knowledge, / Things they would not teach me of in college. / I can see the destiny you sold / turned into a shining band of gold.
