Truant: Photographs, 1970-1979
December 1st, 2017
Throughout the 1970s, filmmaker Barbara Hammer toured the United States, Africa, and Europe, making film after film about women and the lesbian experience, both of which had seldom been seen by a woman, for women on screen before. She made a slew of now-legendary experimental films, including Sisters! (1973), Dyketactics (1974), Multiple Orgasm (1976), Sappho (1978), and Double Strength (1978), more or less inventing lesbian cinema at a time when such material had largely been relegated to the pornographic imagination of male artists and filmmakers.

ISBN 0578113058 (ISBN13: 9780578113050)

This is also true for wedding photographers and the poses they have been trained to use when conducting engagement shoots and photographing weddings. What works for John and Barbara, won't necessarily work for Matthew and Rick, let alone Jill and Louise.

January 1st, 1994
ISBN 0670858501 (ISBN13: 9780670858507)
For Gay and Lesbian Americans, visibility has always been a key issue. While some maintain a life in the closet for family, career, or personal reasons, others come out to a world that rarely celebrates, and at times refuses to tolerate, the simple courage of people just being themselves. Out in America should look no different from the rest of America to the casual observer - there are farmers and artists, sky divers, families, professionals, and retirees. But for gay men, lesbians, and their supporters, the 250 photographs in this book offer evidence of a community that knows no boundaries, a community that has put down roots in truly every segment of American society.

This book documents a moment in the history of American culture - a period in the 1930s, 40s, and 50s that gave birth to new notions of male beauty and desire, and to a new type of male icon. Long before Stonewall and the gay pride movement, there was a small group of men - both photographers and the models who sat for them - who helped pave the way for male sexual liberation. Led by the photographer George Platt Lynes, the painter Paul Cadmus, and the arts patron Lincoln Kirstein, this group shattered taboos surrounding the artistic presentation of the male figure.

An important white leader in the black civil rights struggle, he helped the LBJ White House pass legislation and write crucial civil rights speeches. In the midst of what he described as “the dirtiest fight of my life” struggling to save a federal Mississippi education program, he was viciously murdered in Columbus, Ohio. The murder was never solved. Very little effort went into finding the murderer. The Columbus police and the FBI hinted the unsolved murder was connected to Spike’s undisclosed gay life. During his father's rise in the civil rights movement, Paul Spike lived a life typical of a young man in the 1960s, finding his way through a labyrinth of booze, drugs, and girls. At Columbia University, he was active in the 1968 student rebellion and friends with many SDS radicals. That rootless life ended with his father's murder.

Life Beyond the Binary: Non-Binary Portrait Series
October 1, 2018
What does ‘non-binary’ look like? “Life Beyond the Binary”, the most recent project of riot cakes founder Darcy Quinn, explores this question. Dismayed by the lack of representation of non-binary individuals like themselves, Darcy opened up applications for non-binary people to take part in a portrait zine. The zine is filled with 30 portraits, all drawn by Darcy Quinn, to show the many faces of life outside of the binary. Each portrait is accompanied by a short bio text written by the participants themselves. This zine offers a unique perspective that depicts non-binary people authentically, in their own words, through the artistic expression of someone who shares this identity.

Originally published in 1971, On Being Different is a pioneering and thought-provoking book about being homosexual in America. Just two years after the Stonewall riots, Miller wrote an essay for the New York Times Magazine entitled “What It Means To Be a Homosexual” in response to a homophobic article in Harper’s Magazine. Miller’s writing, described as “the most widely read and discussed essay of the decade,” along with an afterword chronicling his inspiration and readers’ responses, became On Being Different — one of the earliest memoirs to affirm the importance of coming out. This updated edition includes a foreword by Dan Savage and an afterword by Charles Kaiser to highlight the impact of Miller’s classic work.
