Rachelle Lee Smith - Speaking Out: Queer Youth in Focus

Browseabout welcomes Rachelle Lee Smith as she signs copies Speaking Out: Queer Youth in Focus.

This photographic essay explores a wide spectrum of experiences told from the perspective of a diverse group of young people, ages 14-24, identifying as queer (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or questioning). Speaking OUT presents portraits without judgment or stereotype by eliminating environmental influence with a stark white backdrop. This backdrop acts as a blank canvas, where each subject's 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 signing will take place on Sunday, April 10th, beginning at 11:00 AM.
