This photographic celebration of queer love and excellence gathers fourteen LGBTQ+ power couples, offering a glimpse into the journeys that led to their meaningful relationships and thriving careers. From designer Debbie Millman's ardent courtship of writer Roxane Gay (which resulted in their marriage in 2020) to the romantic and creative relationship forged between Perfume Genius bandmates Mike Hadreas and Alan Wyffels on stage during their first world tour, this beautiful book offers a closer look into the lives of fourteen inspiring LGBTQ+ couples and the meet-cutes, success stories, and personal reflections that made them the role models they are today. These icons come from a range of backgrounds-they are trailblazers who lead research labs, restaurants, and news organizations; create life-giving art and music; and tell queer stories in award-winning books, films, and television shows.

With in-depth original interviews facilitated by journalist Hannah Murphy and intimate photography by her wife, Billie Winter, this diverse collection is a jubilant celebration of queer love and an empowering reminder to younger LGBTQ+ generations of their limitless possibilities. AMAZING PROFILES: This star-studded collection features more than twenty-five queer leaders in film and TV, the music industry, journalism, academia, tech companies, and nonprofits. Read about cartoonists ND Stevenson and Molly Knox Ostertag, director Anthony Hemingway and actor Steven Norfleet, restaurateurs Aisha Ibrahim and Samantha Beaird, and many more inspiring figures.

BEAUTIFUL IMAGES: Intimate, joyful, and moving, the photography of Billie Winter captures a diverse group of queer icons in the spaces they have created for themselves. Her candid, organic images of the couples sharing laughter and conversation are supplemented by portraits the subjects took of each other-which showcase the couples' love and connection with a vulnerability that a third-party photographer could never replicate. This gorgeous book presents LGBTQ+ relationships in all theirmultiplicity.

OWN VOICES: This is a book about queer power couples created by a queer creative power couple! In-depth original interviews conducted by journalist Hannah Murphy Winter offer insightful context into the lives and careers of the LGBTQ+ changemakers, and photographs by her wife, Billie Winter, capture genuine, unscripted moments between the subjects. This is a meaningful gift for out-and-proud folks, allies who want to learn more about queer culture, and anyone who wants to uplift the stories of the LGBTQ+ community. Perfect for:- Queer young people and adults and their loved ones - Allies, advocates, and activists - Fans of portrait anthologies and storytelling projects like Humans of New York - Fans of LGBTQ+ photography books like Loving: a Photographic History of Men In Love 1850s-1950s, We Are Everywhere, and Queer Love In Color - Gift-giving for birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, Valentine's Day, Pride Month, and other special occasions
