A portrait of queer life in America


I came across this really cool site today and I wanted to share with all of our readers.  From their website:

Embodiment: A Portrait of Queer Life in is an archive and a journey through a rapidly changing community and the lives of people who offer brave new visions of what it means to be queer in America today. Stopping in churches, parks, high school classrooms, back yards and bedrooms, I have collaborated with individuals from both urban and rural areas for over 6 years.

With this ever-growing archive of portraits, I aim to highlight a national experience while acknowledging its many diverging, overlapping and at times conflicting parts.  Created as a joint effort with participants who boldly stand in front of my lens, Embodiment reveals images of love and survival, creative forms of gender expression and the ever-changing anatomy of a family. It is my hope that these photographs will become a lasting archive for generations to come.

Embodiment is the brainchild of Molly Landreth and can be found after the jump!  Here’s another pic I pulled from their site.  Go check out the project if you have a chance.  It’s really cool.
