Program Description

Event Details

Join us at Queer Reads Book Club to discuss fiction and nonfiction books about and/or written by the LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer) community.

For Pride Month we will be reading Our Work is Everywhere: An Illustrated Oral History of Queer and Trans Resistance by Syan Rose.

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 healthcare 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 nonfiction book that underscores the brilliance and passion of queer and trans resistance.

You can access Our Work is Everywhere: An Illustrated Oral History of Queer and Trans Resistance on Hoopla or request a copy through out catalog. Need a library card? Get one here!
