- Lula Hyers, 19, from New York, undertook the ongoing project to highlight the beauty of queer people – an umbrella term encompassing anyone who might identify as anything other than completely heterosexual and cisgender – and guarantee them a part in history through imagery.
“As a queer femme, I felt it was not only important but vital to make a body of work that serves as a safe space for queer people to exist as they choose without censorship or erasure,” Hyers told The Independent.
The shoot took place last year at a studio in the US  city after Hyers simply posted a time and date on Instagram asking people to take part. She was surprised at how many people showed up willing to be a part of the project.
