This artist book comprises 47 concise anecdotes, written over the span of a number of years leading up to its publication. Each of these anecdotes describes a situation where I become aware of my queerness as a result of an interaction I have with another person. Viewed together, the collection provides an intimate look into how I position myself as a queer individual, and serves to remind that one is only queer in relation to others.

This work was originally designed to be experienced as a publication, but has since been displayed in exhibitions in the form of a wall installation as well. Please scroll down to view installation images.
