We Are Everywhere! Book Signing and Talk
June 27, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Join The Ally Coalition and the authors of We Are Everywhere, Matthew Riemer and Leighton Brown, in a discussion led by activist and historian Blair Imani as they celebrate the visual history of the Queer Liberation movement with a moderated talk and book signing.
A rich and sweeping photographic history of the Queer Liberation Movement, from the creators and curators of the massively popular Instagram account @lgbt_history, released in time for the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots.
The first 25 guests will receive a complimentary copy of We Are Everywhere and Blair Imani’s Modern HERstory.
Through the lenses of protest, power, and pride, We Are Everywhere is an essential and empowering introduction to the history of the fight for queer liberation. Combining exhaustively researched narrative with meticulously curated photographs, the book traces queer activism from its roots in late-nineteenth-century Europe–long before the pivotal Stonewall Riots of 1969–to the gender warriors leading the charge today. Featuring more than 300 images from more than seventy photographers and twenty archives, this inclusive and intersectional book enables us to truly see queer history unlike anything before, with glimpses of activism in the decades preceding and following Stonewall, family life, marches, protests, celebrations, mourning, and Pride. By challenging many of the assumptions that dominate mainstream LGBTQ+ history, We Are Everywhere shows readers how they can—and must—honor the queer past in order to shape our liberated future.
