About the Book

We are everywhere book coverEssential and empowering, We Are Everywhere is a rich and sweeping photographic history of the Queer Liberation Movement from the creators and curators of the massively popular Instagram account @lgbt_history, combining exhaustively researched narrative with meticulously curated photographs, just in time for the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots.

We Are Everywhere traces queer activism from its roots in late-nineteenth-century Europe – long before the pivotal Stonewall Riots of 1969 – to the gender warriors leading the charge today. Featuring more than 300 images from more than seventy photographers and twenty archives, this inclusive and intersectional book enables us to truly see queer history unlike anything before, with glimpses of activism in the decades preceding and following Stonewall, family life, marches, protests, celebrations, mourning, and Pride. By challenging many of the assumptions that dominate mainstream LGBTQ+ history, We Are Everywhere shows readers how they can – and must – honor the queer past in order to shape our liberated future.

About the Authors

MATTHEW RIEMER and LEIGHTON BROWN, creators of Instagram’s @lgbt_history, live in Washington, D.C., where Leighton is an attorney and Matthew, a former attorney, is a writer and lecturer. They enjoy fighting fascists, spending time with their dog, and disrupting fundamentalists’ worldviews. We Are Everywhere is the couple’s first book.
