So much love for @jacobdsaenz @fredsasaki @therealkristaf for celebrating THROWING THE CROWN at our bookstore this weekend. There are few things as beautiful as the love and support shared by Chicago artists.
Yesterday afternoon, we had the honor of hosting the launch celebration for TO SURVIVE ON THIS SHORE by Jess T. Dugan. Thank you to our amazing panelists whose portraits are featured in the book, documenting that there are “an infinite number of trans narratives.” In this photo book of trans elders, the subjects are “the role model they wish they had.” #transelders #tosurviveonthisshore
