About #1 must have
Based in Seattle, WA, [USA] #1 must have is a photo zine that re-frames queer visibility and experience outside of the victim paradigm often perpetuated by popular culture.
A selection of portraits from the zine, on view twenty four hours a day in the Wooster Street Window Gallery, shows how queer people of all ages, queer people of color, and those with trans identities, live in public and private spaces, and celebrates their lives in individual terms that are representative of larger communities.
