Starting with an empty white frame, renowned photographer Magnus Hastings invites members of the LGBTQIA+ community to creatively envision the space and present themselves as they would like to be seen. These vibrant portraits – funny, political, personal, racy, magical, and matter-of-fact – together celebrate the expanding spectrum of queer identity and visibility. Featuring more than 300 images, the book also includes a number of short, moving statements by some of the subjects about who they are, and what that means. Proud, playful, defiant, and diverse, the empowering images and individuals in this beautiful volume represent the strength of knowing and expressing who we are.
Rainbow Revolution includes Alaska Thunderfuck, James Charles, Farah Moan, Willam, Ongina, Honey Davenport, Gigi Goode, Courtney Act, Jade Thirlwall, Luke Evans, Boy George, Adore Delano, Baga Chipz, and many more.
