A photographic celebration of the love and relationships of queer people of color by a former New York Times multimedia journalist
“Thank you, Jamal Jordan, for showing the world what true love looks like.” — Billy Porter
Queer Love in Color features photographs and stories of couples and families across the United States and around the world. This singular, moving collection offers an intimate look at what it means to live at the intersections of queer and POC identities today, and honors an inclusive vision of love, affection, and family across the spectrum of gender, race, and age.
"This is a mirror into which generations might look to see their deepest selves and a world of possibilities reflected back at them." Tre’vell Anderson, journalist and cultural critic
“Jamal Jordan challenges the narrow depictions of queer love through this masterfully written, photographed, and curated collection. There is no one way to love, and Queer Love in Color honors and celebrates that truth.” Blair Imani, historian and author
"With portraits of and insight from queer folks of color from around the world, Jordan captures the most profound gift of queerness: We define our own realities, design our own joys, and experience loves that have no equal.” Matthew Riemer and Leighton Brown, authors of We Are Everywhere: Protest, Power, and Pride in the History of Queer Liberation
