Some may decry Valentine's Day as crass and commercial. Folks say it's a gimmick to make us spend money and the fallout is that single people feel even crappier about being single. Another way to approach Valentine's season is to look at it as time for celebrating the ones we love. Since being gay and lesbian is mostly defined about who we love, let's celebrate that.
Thanks to photographer Matt Lambert for these romantic photos depicting young love in Los Angeles. See more of Matt Lambert's work on his website, and his Instagram page.
