Queer Bath Zine
Queer Bath Zine is a collaborative photography project that archives moments of queer and trans people bathing. Made up of images collected between 2020-2022, the project takes the form of a zine that explores how bathing, as a solitary or social activity can be a space that allows marginalized individuals to create their own environments of care and safety.
Launching at Eyelevel's Bookstore, 2482 Maynard Street on February 23rd @ 6:30PM with a talk by Adrien at 7PM, refreshments will be provided.
