Check out this amazing poster project that celebrates radical queer history. The posters were created by the Chicago group “Chances Dances” and each poster features a portrait, a quote from the person celebrated and a brief bio.
The Chances Dances website notes that “These masks portray a selection of radical queers and allies, some from the past and some from the present, some recognized and others hidden. We hope their lives and work will inspire current and future generations to SUMMON A NEW QUEER REALITY! We offer these masks as symbols of power through knowledge and community through history! Please pass it on!”
