Lesbian Land in Feature Shoot

I'm delighted to share Ellyn Kail's piece for Feature Shoot on my "Lesbian Land" exhibition at the Stonewall National Museum and Archives in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. From the article: "“When I told the land dykes that I was a teacher and working at a university and showing my art because I wanted to be out in the world and create societal change, I was surprised because they kind of laughed at me. They were like, ‘You can’t change society—it’s rotten to the core.’"  

PhMuseum: 10 Photographers To Discover On Mother’s Day

I'm proud to announce that a photo from my new series is included in the Eye Mama Project and book, showcasing photos by those who identify as mothers. PhMuseum's website features my work and this poignant statement:

"The re-imagination of masculinity: of visions of fatherhood that allow for loving touch, and care. The affirmation of LGBTQ identities: of their existence and legitimacy, in a moment where the US legislation attacks and limits the expression of queer and trans experience. This photo of Leah DeVun’s partner, a transgender father, and their son, bears the hope for a different present and the struggles of an ongoing fight - but most of all, it carries one certainty: the need for LGBTQ families to be pictured and seen."
