A new photo book series published by The New Press showcases the diversity and complexity of LGBTQ+ communities around the world.
A collaboration between the Arcus Foundation, Emerson, Wajdowicz Studios, and The New Press, the Diverse Humanity series, “gives a voice to LGBTQ people through compelling pictures and words,” states the press release.
Authored by a group of distinguished international photographers, there are a total of 11 books in the series. Together, the books spotlight marginalized and frequently persecuted communities that have challenged rigid definitions of family and personhood. Exploring human relationships in all their intricate variations, Diverse Humanity — the first photo book series of its kind — takes a nuanced look at a wide range of people and cultures. The project explores gender diversity, gender expression, and sexual orientation championing a view of humanity that moves beyond binary perceptions.
To commemorate Pride Month and the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, the complete series will be on sale at PrideFest NYC on Sunday, June 30.
