Matthew Riemer and Leighton Brown discuss their book We Are Everywhere: Protest, Power, and Pride in the History of Queer Liberation. Riemer and Brown are the creators of queerhistory.com and Instagram’s @lgbt_history.
Brown is an attorney and Riemer is a former attorney, writer, and lecturer. The two live in Washington, DC, where they enjoy “fighting fascists, spending time with their dog, and disrupting fundamentalists’ worldviews.”
This talk is presented in conjunction with Dona Ann McAdams: Performative Acts, a retrospective of work by the acclaimed photographer and activist. Riemer and Brown said of McAdams, “Cutting her teeth in Harvey Milk’s Castro as women and queer people demanded more, perfecting her eye in the East Village as a generation fought an epidemic, lending a hand to the fight against injustice and erasure wherever she lands, Dona is an activist, in the truest sense of the word.”
Copies of the book will be available for purchase at the event.
