Our Work Is Everywhere: An Illustrated Oral History of Queer and Trans Resistance

Availability: Ready to download

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 tran 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. Includes a foreword by Lambda Literary Award-winning author and activist Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha, author of Care Work: Dreaming Disability Justice.

    this is such a gift. there are a few spots where i struggle with the content politically (the use of "womxn" for one, the majority focus on urban work minus one perfect rural mutual aid section for another) but i really think that's part of what makes this so important. the queer and trans "communities" are not singular - they are built up of many communities and many opinions and endless intersections of identity and proximity to power. thank you so much for this. i will keep coming back to it this is such a gift. there are a few spots where i struggle with the content politically (the use of "womxn" for one, the majority focus on urban work minus one perfect rural mutual aid section for another) but i really think that's part of what makes this so important. the queer and trans "communities" are not singular - they are built up of many communities and many opinions and endless intersections of identity and proximity to power. thank you so much for this. i will keep coming back to it over and over.

    I'm struggling with how to rate this. From the perspective of what the book is about and the interviews, essays, and poems it contains, this is everything you could ask for. I was a little surprised to see the use of "womxn" but I don't think what I will call am editorial oversight, detracts from the overall book. Where I stumble is the presentation. The illustrations are gorgeous and the care and effort that was given to make each contributor's piece unique and stand out is evident. However, the I'm struggling with how to rate this.

The illustrations are gorgeous and the care and effort that was given to make each contributor's piece unique and stand out is evident. However, the choice to go with a handwritten font left a lot of the text difficult to read. I understand that this decision was likely made for aesthetic cohesion, but I often had to squint to make out words, which was further exacerbated by poor contrast on some pages. Ultimately, it's obvious that this book is a true labour of love and also an important text for those looking to learn more about folks who are leading lights of queer and trans resistance.

    4.5 stars. A beautifully drawn collection of interviews with queer and trans activists. The art style is very unique - I did have some trouble navigating the text layout on occasion, not quite sure why, so I did have to back up and re-read some pages to get the flow right.

    An incredible project in both art, range of voices, and scope. So important. There was something that hit me on every single page.
