Our Work is Everywhere: An Illustrated Oral History of Queer and Trans Resistance
by Syan Rose Author and Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha Foreword
This graphic nonfiction underscores the brilliance and passion of queer and trans resistance. The past ten years have witnessed the rise of queer and trans communities that have defied and challenged those who have historically opposed and repressed them. 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 with bold, symbolic imagery and surrealist, overlapping landscapes. Queer and trans organizers, artists, healers, comrades, and leaders speak honestly and authentically in their own words about their unique experiences with power, love, pain, and magic to create a textured and nuanced portrait of queer and trans realities in America. Rose’s startling and sinuous images bring these leaders’ words to visual life.
