Since starting my documentary project, All We’ve Got, I’ve come across more and more projects aimed at mapping LGBTQ spaces – even the National Parks Service is getting in on the game.
You can see a list of some of the mapping projects I’ve found or been introduced to over the past couple of years here.
Seeing the coming and going of so many spaces through these maps adds both a sense of urgency, and also a sense of perspective about the always precarious state of queer women’s spaces. It’s also a nudge to keep going with the documentary. Learn more about the project here.
You can now purchase copies of Sinister Wisdom 101: Variations, the issue that I was invited to guest edit. The journal celebrated 40 years of publishing this summer. Read journal editor Julie Enszer’s essay about the issue here.
