Second Tuesday Presents "We Are Everywhere: Protest, Power, and Pride in the History of Queer Liberation"
By Leighton Brown and Matthew Riemer
Leighton Brown and Matthew Riemer, the creators and curators of the massively popular Instagram account @lgbt_history, take us through a rich and sweeping photographic history of the Queer Liberation Movement just in time for the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots.
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 70 photographers and 20 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.
