A visually stunning graphic non-fiction book on queer and trans
Over the past ten
years, we have witnessed the rise of queer and trans communities that
have defied and challenged those who have historically opposed them.
Through bold, symbolic imagery and surrealist, overlapping
landscapes, queer illustrator and curator Syan Rose shines a light on
the faces and voices of these diverse, amorphous, messy, real, and
imagined queer and trans communities.
In their own words,
queer and trans organizers, artists, healers, comrades, and leaders
speak honestly and authentically about their own experiences with
power, love, pain, and magic to create a textured and nuanced
portrait of queer and trans realities in America. The many themes
include Black femme mental health, Pacific Islander authorship, fat
queer performance art, disability and health care practice, sex
worker activism, and much more. Accompanying the narratives are
Rose's startling and sinuous images that brings these leaders' words
to visual life.
Our Work Is
Everywhere is a graphic non-fiction book that underscores the
brilliance and passion of queer and trans resistance.
