Today Buzzfeed posted 45 photos in a recap titled "The Most Powerful Images Of 2012." The compilation, which runs the gamut from horrifying to mournful to hopeful, includes two LGBT-related images, both of which appeared on JMG earlier this year. In the top photo, masked assailants stomp a Ukrainian gay rights activist. In the second, two Maryland women get engaged on election night. Those two images appear far apart in the Buzzfeed list, but for us they do provide vivid bookends to a year marked by domestic triumphs but increased dangers overseas.
