Queer bbys is a digital portrait series of friends who identify as lgbtq. It is a series that celebrates the community and a way to revolt against the political climate lgbtq+ persons face everyday. Queer “bbys” deserve to be celebrated at every capacity and creating portraits of specifically BIPOC queer persons is taking a step in demanding appreciation for how beautiful it is to be ourselves. Each portrait features different types and reflections of love from self love to love with partners. They also represent the diverse faces of queerness.
