The queer community continues to be actively erased and forgotten, leaving few traces of our existence in comparison to the cis heteronormative history readily available. I picked up a film camera years ago in order to reinscribe our narratives into the history of film photography. These images are traces of friendships, encounters, and collaborations that bear witness to the fabulous resilience of our community. I’d like to thank every model for trusting me with their portraits, and for constantly inspiring me with their transformative creativity.
