Speaking OUT vandalized at UConn, author Rachelle Lee Smith answers with more events and outreach

 

We recently copublished Speaking OUT: Queer Youth in Focus with Reach & Teach, a book that explores the complex lives and representations of LGBTQ youth from their perspective. But the photo-essay by author and photographer Rachelle Lee Smith is more than a book. It's an ongoing, "for youth, by youth" project of positive, inclusive, and empowering images of LGBTQ Youth. Rachelle has been taking the project on the road with gallery shows, pop-up exhibits, book talks, workshops, and presentations to organizations large and small.
Speaking OUT exists to give hope and inspiration, to show that we're not alone, and to foster empathy in a world that is often filled with bigotry, oppression, and hate.  
 
Unfortunately, hate is exactly what the project recently received.

Peter Kuper's Drawn to New York reviewed in Vermicious


"Kuper’s New York is one filled with raunch and sleaze and weirdness in a more major way than exists now, when the sweeping and sometimes disturbing craziness of the city functioned as an abstract soap opera better than anything you could find on television. For those who never had the adventure of living in that New York, Kuper’s book does an excellent job of relaying that experience through the intensity and dark humor of his art."—John Seven, Vermicious

“Debt is a profoundly effective form of social control.” —Strike Debt

 
"The good people of Strike Debt have revised and expanded their very popular, Debt Resisters’ Operations Manual, (DROM) into a full-length book. It is half political and historical analysis of how indebtedness has come to define so many aspects of our lives and half a practical how-to guide for people struggling with various forms of debt to seek individual relief and collective action.

Strike Debt defines itself as “a nationwide movement of debt resisters fight- ing for economic justice and democratic freedom.”

As an ideological and practical tool, the DROM is highly valuable and appropriate to our time of crisis..."—Alex Knight, Fifth Estate

Marge Piercy's The Cost of Lunch, Etc. Reviewed on Rain Taxi


"A prolific novelist, poet, and memoirist, Piercy’s books include Woman on the Edge of Time, Gone to Soldiers, and The Hunger Moon. As in poetry, short fiction involves working within a limited space, and Piercy uses the skills she has earned as a poet to craft rich, succinct stories with quirky characters and layered imagery.

Each story in The Cost of Lunch, Etc. has a female protagonist. Some are also partly autobiographical, such as “She’s Dying He Said,” in which Jewish heritage is central to Marah, who survives childhood German measles and rheumatic fever thanks to a hamsa, an upraised hand with an eye in the palm that wards off demons..."—George Longenecker, Rain Taxi
