Rachel’s Team Pick:
Those of you playing along from home may remember Molly Landreth from when we interviewed her about Embodiment: A Portrait of Queer Life in America this time last year. She was working with Amelia Tovey and a large-format camera to document the lives of queer people of all spots and stripes all across the country, and she was creating a one-of-a-kind documentary as she went. It was an amazing project, and a really significant experience for those involved in it.
Being a part of Embodiment, portrayed as a valid and important part of national queer culture and community, makes me feel less isolated. Even within queer community, genders and identities can be narrowing and limiting, but with Embodiment, each person is seen as an individual, and each expression is inspiring.
— Hanna King, Embodiment participant

Before you go! It takes funding to keep this publication by and for queer women and trans people of all genders running every day. We will never put our site behind a paywall because we know how important it is to keep Autostraddle free. But that means we rely on the support of our A+ Members. Still, 99.9% of our readers are not members. A+ membership starts at just $4/month. If you’re able to, will you join A+ and keep Autostraddle here and working for everyone?
