2nd edition of our Mother Nature is a Lesbian zine with essay and images originally created in 2018. From the zine: "The unique quality of hand-lettered signage reflects the urgency by which the objects were created for protest. Each protest sign photographed was crystallized in that moment to become emblematic of a precise moment in time. I wished to use the vernacular type extracted from the signs to expand upon that particular moment of protest."
This project as includes a reprinting of 12 works created using the Mother Nature is a Lesbian font. Each work becomes an ethical statement inspired by contemporary protest for queer and trans livelihood.
