Revolutionary Love: Volumes of Resistance

Our queer futures are made possible by the activism and resistance of those who came before us.

Revolutionary Love, dropping 5.31.23, is about the many volumes of love, and the many volumes of resistance. With this year’s collection, we continue to honor the formative moments that made Pride a revolution.

Below are some of the historic signs and slogans that celebrated, revolted, and loved at every level — loud and proud, and quiet and poetic. These images represent what it is to radically reimagine liberation, and where art, progress, and equity so beautifully intersect.
