Snap away with endless selfies, reveling in the glory of the spirits who’ve paved the road for the LGBTQ+ community. Prepare to strike a pose and become a member of the queer icon family!
Bebe Books is an ongoing collective experiment that operates through shared agency in creative labor, care and friendship in the field of communication design and publishing. By working together, we resist the modern myth of a singular heroic designer – what Ursula K. Le Guin referred to as “the narrative of the arrow or spear.” We consider ourselves as a queer collective not merely as a statement of identity, but as that of methodology. Besides the fact that the majority of our constituents are gender-non-conforming, we use our creative capacity and resources to design a context – be it a book, a gay bar, a temple, or a political campaign – where diverse marginalized experiences and voices can be represented.
