    Orlando’s Come Out With Pride roared back this year bigger and better than ever, and we feel this shot captured the celebratory vibe perfectly. “These gentlemen were doing flips and splits and all of these acrobatic moves. I just walked with them for about 50 or 60 yards trying to capture them in mid-air. I got lucky. This was the only frame that was in focus,” remembers Casto.
