Queer Youth in FocuseBook - 2014
A photographic essay that explores a wide spectrum of experiences told from the perspective of a diverse group of young people, ages 1424, identifying as queer (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or questioning), Speaking OUT. Queer Youth in Focus presents portraits without judgment or stereotype by eliminating environmental influence with a stark white backdrop. This backdrop acts as a blank canvas, where each subjects personal thoughts are handwritten onto the final photographic print. With more than 65 portraits photographed over a period of 10 years, the book provides rare insight into the passions, confusions, prejudices, joys, and sorrows felt by queer youth and gives a voice to an underserved group of people that are seldom heard and often silenced. The collaboration of image and first-person narrative serves to provide an outlet, show support, create dialogue, and help those who struggle.
